Special exhibition of the National Gallery - National Museums in Berlin
With "Dreams Have No Titles," Zineb Sediras has already graced the French pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale. Now her show at Hamburger Bahnhof is being shown in Germany for the first time. In a melange of film, sculpture, photography and performance, the French-Algerian artist combines parts of her own biography with the history of activist films in the context of France, Algeria and Italy.
Zineb Sedir conceives the exhibition space as a film set for a live shoot that combines fiction and documentary, personal and collective.
In "Dreams Have No Titles" the artist deals with an important turning point in the history of avant-garde film production in the 1960s and 1970s. She thus presents a cautionary tale about the failure of an emancipatory dream that remains an unfulfilled promise for many people to this day.
A conversation with the artist will take place at the exhibition in February.
The exhibition is made possible with the support of the Institut Français Paris and Berlin.
