Chains of Interest

In the exhibition Chains of Interest, Isaac Chong Wai, Lizza May David, Wilhelm Klotzek, Ofri Lapid, Adrien Missika and Gitte Villesen continue their personal explorations of the ifa - Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen art collection.

Since fall 2021, they have investigated the collection through their own artistic practices. In the preceding exhibition Spheres of Interest, the artists activated and contextualised selected works from the collection in performative and narrative approaches. Their selections offered a critical and humorous look at the collection’s unique history. The artists discovered and illuminated omissions and political entanglements, while also drawing numerous new connections between the selected artworks.

Chains of Interest is the second part of this artistic-curatorial investigation intended to deepen the artists’ relationships with the ifa collection. They take the floor with newly developed works of their own featuring various artistic languages, attitudes, and environments expressed in film, sound, language and playful performance. The exhibition moves from phrase to image to thought all the way to action, connecting them all in a polyphonic score of voices.
