The exhibition “Throwing Gestures” scrutinizes gesture as a physical movement that gains its significance through political attribution, as well as its media (in)visibility. “Throwing Gestures” examines media representations of (political) gestures, including their translation, displacement and (de-)contextualization, verbalization, as well as video recognition and cinematic forms. The artworks analyze power structures, be they visible or invisible, or manifested in material forms such as architecture and technology. Artists participating in the exhibition: Larry Archiampong & David Blandy, Jakob Argauer, Florian Bettel, Dina Boswank, Justine A. Chambers, Jeremy Deller, Timo Herbst, Kerstin Honeit, Irina Kaldrack, Silas Mücke, Marcus Nebe, Tobias Schulze, Konrad Strutz, Baha Talis, Nasan Tur, Laurie Young. Curated by Florian Bettel, Dina Boswank, Timo Herbst, Konrad Strutz and Laurie Young. The spatial staging was developed through a process of critical discourse with Alexander Koch.
