The Boat is Leaking. The Captain Lied.

Exhibition, Fondazione Prada, Ca’ Corner della Regina, Venice, Italy.


From May 13, 2017 until November 26, 2017
This transmedia exhibition project is the result of an on-going, in-depth exchange between writer and filmmaker Alexander Kluge, artist Thomas Demand, stage and costume designer Anna Viebrock, and curator Udo Kittelmann. It unfolds on three storeys of the 18th century palazzo and includes photographic and film works as well as spatial settings. In a dialogue of polyphonic references and constellations between the contributions of each artist, the presentation spans film, art, and theatre media. The confluence of image spaces and scenes for a variety of atmospheres transforms the historic building into a metaphorical site for the identification of the worlds we live in and our personal attitudes towards them.
