until 28.10. | #1571ARTatBerlin | Kunstverein am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz presents from 16th September 2017 the exhibition “Hunting Season” by the french artist Arnaud Cohen.
Hunting Season refers to the famous ‘Rien’, Louis XVI noted in his hunting diary on the eve of the French Revolution. Originally exclusively related to the King’s hunting success, the interpretation suggests that this was a sign of a complete misunderstanding of one’s own as well as the historical situation.In autumn elections are held in Germany.
Against the present background of the growing influence of populist parties and groupings in the whole of Europe, the Verein zur Förderung von Kunst und Kultur am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz e.V invited the French artist Arnaud Cohen to show his installation Hunting Season (2016) in Berlin. It is based on a kind of archaeological study of his studio, the so-called Coutellerie, whose turbulent history included occupation and collaboration during the occupation of France in the Second World War and reign of the Vichy regime. In addition, the artist has developed a new work of related content: Dansez sûr moi (2017). These two installations form the core of the exhibition. In addition, older work is shown; including Smileys Revanchard (2011) and Winter over Europe (Ich lieb dich nicht, du liebst mich nicht).
Vernissage: Friday, 15th September 2017, 6 p.m.
