Work by Candice Breitz on museum show in Finland

Work by Candice Breitz is featured on the Wäinö Aaltonen Museum of Art’s current group exhibition, titled Civil War (5 October – 13 January). The exhibition considers the armed conflicts from the perspectives of a war’s civilians and victims. Although it is timely to look back at the Finnish Civil War and World War I, both fought in 1918, this exhibition also covers present-day conflicts around the world by presenting a selection of works by various international artists who deal with the wars of our own time.

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.
