Continental Shift

Neuer Aachener Kunstverein (NAK)
Passstraße 29
May 21–September 10, 2000

Celebrating the art of more than eighty “nomads” from around the globe, this cooperative cross-border effort brings together work that expressly addresses its own relation to European cultural influence and reinscribes the Continent's boundaries in the process. Curated by Annette Lagler of the Ludwig Forum with the help of David Galloway, Gregor Jansen, Marjorie Jongbloed, Wen-i Yang, Rick Takvorian, and Wolfgang Knauff, the show includes Venice '99 stars Huang Yong-Ping and Shirin Neshat, performer Kendell Geers, and the multifaceted Olu Oguibe.
