Candice Breitz's "TLDR" and "Sweat" on view in Germany

Candice Breitz: Sex Work at the Museum Frieder Burda in Berlin presents the artist’s TLDR and Sweat, video works which address the rampant gender-based violence faced by sex workers (21 September – 5 January). Shot shortly before #MeToo went mainstream in October 2017, the works resonate poignantly within this debate, re-focusing questions that are central to the movement. The exhibition features Breitz’s work in dialogue with pieces by American artist William N. Copley from the collection Frieder Burda. Both artists oppose the discrimination of sex workers, but from two different points of views: Copley’s depictions feature erotic and faceless nudes dominated by the male gaze, while Breitz gives these individuals back their voices.

Candice Breitz on group exhibition in Switzerland

Candice Breitz’s Love Story forms part of the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen’s group exhibition, titled The Humans (15 September – 24 March). The exhibition explores how artists formulate their independent views of the world and how they immerse themselves in realities that are inaccessible to traditional media. In addition to the role of our consumption of digital media, the participating artists also shed light on questions about how we deal with people on the margins of society and our attitude toward global migrations.

Candice Breitz on historic group show in Hannover

For over a century the Kunstverein Hannover in Germany has held an annual exhibition based on an open-call system. 88. Herbstausstellung, the title of this year’s edition, features 53 artists chosen from a pool of 500 applications by a jury. Candice Breitz is one of the artists selected to exhibit work at a handful of venues throughout the city, which includes the Kunstverein, the KUBUS municipal gallery and ‘Vom Zufall und vom Glück’ gallery (18 August – 28 October).

Candice Breitz’s 'Profile' acquired and exhibited by New York’s Jewish Museum

The prestigious Jewish Museum in New York has acquired Profile, a film installation by Candice Breitz first shown at the 57th Venice Biennale. Profile features ten prominent artists who introduce themselves as Breitz, blurring personal and shared biographical details to create a composite self-portrait that problematises the idea of a single person representing a diverse nation. The film is being screened as part of the museum’s ongoing exhibition, Scenes from the Collection, which brings together work that affirms ‘universal values that are shared among people of all faiths and backgrounds’.
