Pinakothek der Moderne

in detail

The works exhibited have evolved out of the artists’ engagement with the lingering after-effects of the Second World War, or are played out at the intersections of the so-called First and Third Worlds, be it along the US-Mexican border fence or on the external borders of Europe. Their complex visual narratives are based upon concrete events and critically reflect upon their historical representations and social relevance. They contrast images conveyed through the media and official histories with different readings, informed by personal perspectives.
