Rather than arguing for a monolithic definition of photography, this exhibition is betwixt and between, with a three-pronged approach.”

"The presentation at Haus der Kunst is the most comprehensive and wideranging survey of Sundaram’s work at a European institution. The display is conceived as a sequence of juxtapositions with a view to suggesting how formal and thematic concerns ricochet from one work to another. History, Memory, Archive: the three keywords that the artist has designated as the overarching concerns of his practice are the signposts, as it were, for articulating the overall structure of the exhibition, an open-ended framework for exploring the connections or disjunctures between these terms and themes." - Curator Deepak Ananth, Assistant Curator Anna Schneider

Nandita Raman's work is exhibited at Baxter Street at the Camera Club of New York's Body is A Situation.
In her first New York City solo exhibition, Raman looks at the most available body, her own, in an effort to locate herself in the here and now; and opens it up to performativity of gender. In so looking, she embodies Simone de Beauvoir’s sentiment: “The body is not a thing, it is a situation: it is our grasp on the world and our sketch of our project”.
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 15 | 6-8 pm

Preparing for his Retrospective exhibition, Vivan Sundaram says: “This exhibition presents the themes I have engaged with, but it also proposes structures that hold things together in retrospect: via the work, the exhibition layout, and spectator itineraries. ‘Step inside and you are no longer a stranger’: the exhibition’s title reflects the conflicting dimensions of my practice.”
