  • Andrea Fraser

    Museum der Moderne Salzburg | Mönchsberg
    Mönchsberg 32
    March 21 - July 5

    Curated by Sabine Breitwieser and Tina Teufel

    The fact that Andrea Fraser has been working for thirty years might suggest that her efforts are easily categorizable, their sociocultural points of reference known. But this is not the case: Fraser’s unfinished work of feminism is structured by sharp (and humorous, and moving) undoings of critical distance, the symbolic, and the embodied. To be among the audience of a performance like Official Welcome, 2001/2003, or Men on the Line, 2012/ 2013, is to encounter culture’s knot of languages, desires, identities, and competencies in all its complexity. This survey promises to encompass a broad selection of Fraser’s work in performance, video, audio, photography, and writing. The curators have conceived a core for the exhibition that will offer documentary materials addressing the more oblique parts of Fraser’s practice, such as her collaborations (the V-Girls, Services, Parasite, and Orchard) with other artists and producers. The exhibition catalogue will feature texts by Shannon Jackson and Sven Lütticken.
