General Idea, AIDS, 1989, (Deutsche AIDS-Stiftung, Bonn).

Exhibition in nGbK Berlin, part I until 05 January 2014; part II 18 January – 19 March 2014.
Art, society, AIDS, and emancipation’ describes a set of themes that have repeatedly been addressed in exhibitions at the nGbK, and for a number of years they even prompted an entire exhibition series – Unterbrochene Karrieren (Interrupted Careers) (1997 – 2003). While the current presentation in this two-header focuses on historical debates, concentrating on the period between 1987 and 1995, the subsequent show will feature more recent works created from the mid 1990s to the present. The main emphasis, then and now, is on the concept of addressing and interacting.
