Dialogical guided tour with the art mediators Max Holicki and Lara Siegers through the exhibition.

The work of Norwegian artist and sculptor Camilla Steinum focuses on the quality and characteristics of materials and objects. In „zusammen und getrennt“ (engl.: „together and divided“), the Kunstverein Göttingen presents Steinum‘s first institutional solo show in Germany with mostly new sculptures, based on Steinum’s observations surrounding the need for people to control, divide and differentiate. What does it mean to belong and what does it mean when excluded? What lies within and what beyond? And who allows for admission and entry? Camilla Steinum releases materials and objects from their prescribed function and sounds out their potential to refer to body, power and materialist structures in contemporary society.

– Tomke Braun, Curator
