Dara Birnbaum | Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) | 18 June – 6 August 2021. Marian Goodman Gallery. Berlin






On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the n.b.k. Video-Forum, founded in 1971, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) will host the first solo presentation of Birnbaum’s work in Germany in over 20 years. The focus is on works acquired for the collection of the n.b.k. Video-Forum since the 1980s. Birnbaum’s preoccupation with television, the mass medium of her time, manifests itself in her early works Technology/Transformation: Wonder Woman (1978–1979) and Kiss the Girls: Make Them Cry (1979), which have become canonical works of video art. Her work Lesson Plans (To Keep the Revolution Alive) (1977), consisting of 30 image and text panels, premieres in Germany and relates Birnbaum’s early involvement with standardized cinematic techniques. The development of her own video aesthetic with the aid of visual effects is at the heart of her trilogy Damnation of Faust (1983–1987), which can be viewed on the n.b.k. website as an extension of the exhibition.

Curator: Arkadij Koscheew
