We were welcomed and guided by Kathrin Bentele, Director of the Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen Düsseldorf since October 2021 and curator of the exhibition. Many thanks for this very interesting and exciting tour. We are already looking forward to the next exhibitions and further encounters.
The video and film exhibition CLOSER, which runs until 24 April, negotiates relationships of proximity and contact between film spaces and the physical space of the viewers. As contradictory as the concept of proximity itself is, implying something reassuring and stabilising, but also something controlling, intimacy becomes as ambivalent with the presence of a camera.(www.kunstverein-duesseldorf.de)
