There is no such thing as a real story. Stories—to paraphrase American historian Hayden White—are not lived, they are told. In this walk-through Ana Teixeira Pinto (theory tutor@DAI) will look at narrative and the structural relation between fictional form and non-fictional subject matter in the work of Peter Friedl. KW - Berlin on 27 February, 2 pm in English

| tag: Berlin

Report 1964–2022 is Peter Friedl’s (b. 1960) most extensive institutional survey in Germany to date. Adopting a variety of genres, media, and forms of display, Friedl’s works seek to explore the construction of history and the concepts within our political and aesthetical consciousness. His artistic practice is aimed at creating new models of narration in which time, permanent displacement, and critical intimacy all play a central role.
