    Curated by Christoph Heinrich

    Most commentators on Mona Hatoum (Edward Said among them) invoke figures of exile and displacement, and not without reason: Explorations of national and cultural identity preoccupy the work of this London-based Palestinian artist. Over the past decade the dispossession she has charted has been of a more intimate and corporeal sort, such as endoscopic video footage of her own body. This midcareer survey—Hatoum’s largest solo show to date and her first in Germany—features over sixty works from the past thirteen years: video, performance, photography, sculpture, and posters. The catalogue includes essays by curator Christoph Heinrich and others. Look for the new installation created specifically for the Kunsthalle’s massive central dome.
