10/25/13 – 2/2/14

The Kunsthalle Mainz is continuing its series of double exhibitions with a show featuring the work of Monica Bonvicini and Sterling Ruby. Bonvicini and Ruby are among the most important representatives of a critical art in which questions of the psyche, urban living space and unsettling counterculture are expressed. The focal point of the work of both artists is the potential for release under repressive conditions. Architecture in particular is at the center of their work. Both Bonvicini and Ruby work with interior spaces. This becomes most evident in their exploration of prison architectures, which both artists work through as gestures of domination and repression.
