With works by Renée Green

Inevitable Distances, a comprehensive survey of Renée Green’s practice from the early 1980s until now, is simultaneously taking place in Berlin at daadgalerie and KW Institute for Contemporary Art. Green was a 1993/94 DAAD Artist-in-Berlin Program fellow. In 1995, daadgalerie, then still located on Kurfürstenstraße, hosted her exhibition, Miscellaneous.

At today’s daadgalerie, Inevitable Distances presents a re-staging of Certain Miscellanies, a monumental photographic work translating Green’s early 1990s European encounters, first presented in her 1995 DAAD exhibition. This installation is now recombined with Green’s other works, Climates and Paradoxes and Selected Life Indexes, produced for the Einstein Jahr 2005, and the video Begin Again, Begin Again (2015), centered around Rudolph M. Schindler’s architecture. The project Inevitable Distances highlights Green’s ongoing engagement with circuits of exchange between Europe and the Americas.

Throughout the juxtapositions of past and present this paradox emerges: How to bring back the dislocated and the dead, not in order to chase away the ghosts, but rather, to welcome and grant them “the right to a hospitable memory out of a concern for justice”?

Conceived and curated by Melanie Roumiguière and Natalie Keppler.

In collaboration with KW Institute for Contemporary Art Berlin.

Renée Green was a fellow of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program in 1993.
