Exhibition: UN.Known Spaces by Janina Janke & Maurice de Martin, Jun. 26 – Jul. 17 2014 @ Goethe Institut

UN Known Spaces
Exhibition Opening/Lecture Performance: Thursday, June 26 2014 at 7.00pm
Venue: Goethe-Institut, Auditorium
Admission: free

Exhibition Runs Until July 17, 2014

The art project UN.KNOWN SPACES has been developed as an integral part of the large scale scientific research project “Knowledge through Art”, funded by the FWF (Austrian Science Fund). Inspired by the French philosopher Michel Foucault and the phenomenon “Worlds inside the World”, the two German artists, Janina Janke and Maurice de Martin, focused on the United Nations headquarters in Vienna, New York, and Nairobi as these “worlds”.

From 2011 onwards, they collected a total of 66 interviews from the three headquarters conducted with a wide spectrum of UN staff and people from the “outside”, in which they are telling their personal life story.

After having exhibited the work in Vienna, the exhibition now travels to Nairobi.

The videos will be presented in form of a large scale projection, combined with an ambient sound installation played on a Marimba.
