Sturtevant

MUSEUMᴹᴹᴷ FÜR MODERNE KUNST
Domstraße 10
September 4, 2004–March 5, 2005

One of the art world’s greatest éminences terribles, Sturtevant has for over forty years been charting the unruly interiors and exteriors of the visible. Curator Mario Kramer takes over the entirety of the Museum für Moderne Kunst with about 140 multi-media works for what’s being billed as the artist’s first retrospective—but let me assure you, Sturtevant don’t want no retrospective, since her endeavor has always been exposing contrafactual immanence, eternally returning. Sadly, this landmark exhibit won’t travel, so let’s hope some staunch American museum takes heed and brings this artist and her work home. With an essay by Bernard Blistène and an interview by John Waters, the catalogue will expose brutal truths, and, licking the shiny boot of beauty, we like it that way.
