XX

Nine Budde
Barbara Hammer
Exhibition
7/6 — 6/7 2017
Opening
6/6 2017 7pm
XX is both double exposure and crossing of two narratives. The exhibition brings together two female artists of different generations who have come to feminism in very different ways, times and places, yet share many aspects underlying their practices. Both are equipped with a strong-minded sense for female independency, for emotions and for the spirit to performatively connect their body and language with a self-proclaimed femininity.

Barbara Hammer began to work as an artist and filmmaker in the late 60s, Nine Budde in the late 90s. Their early works are marked by a similar sense of humor and tactics of role-play and performative gestures towards a queer re-reading of sexual and political histories. In later years, both deal intimately with notions of death and sickness, at the same time devoting themselves to making documentary films that revisit cultural historical biographies.

The exhibition is an hommage to a shared and mutual understanding between different generations of female artists. It also reminds us how many of the issues and questions that Barbara Hammer addressed in her early 70s and 80s film and video works are still as relevant today as they were back then. A virtual correspondence between two friends who never met, an experiment to let their artworks speak with each other and collectively for themselves.
