re-explore / re-write I

July 16 until July 25, 2021

Public collections, archives and museums in particular have (re)constructed and shaped political perspectives in order to provide structures and content for the communication of history and culture. In the process, a Eurocentric canon of knowledge has developed over generations that needs to be critically and artistically questioned. The starting point for the artistic-scientific research was the (virtual) rooms and collections of the Linden-Museum. In the entrance area as well as in the rooms of the LindenLAB and the permanent exhibition, the first questions of critical investigation and reflection on collection practices and classification systems in the museum were presented.

On display were works by Marie David, Veronika Schneider, Julia Schmutz and Leonie Weber. An exhibition with final works was realized in 2022.

re-explore / re-write was led by Prof. Antonia Low and the artist Luise Schröder and took place in close cooperation with the Linden-Museum Stuttgart and the LindenLAB under Henrike Hoffmann.
