Johanna Billing

Curator: Philipp Kaiser

The video works by Swedish artist Johanna Billing (b. 1973) oscillate between documentary and staged scientific experiment. Billing examines social rituals in which, for instance, some young people reconstruct a long-forgotten experiment or artists sing a melancholy ballad in solidarity. By focusing on the dialectical relationship between the individual and the community, Billing reveals processes of social erosion, without making value judgements.

From October 30 there will be Part 2 on display with three further works.
