Venue: Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart
We’re beside ourselves with anticipation for the latest exhibition by Adrian Piper. Legendary American conceptual artist and philosopher, Piper’s work is known to deal a brutally honest critique of social constructs, questioning race, ostracism, and otherness. Piper is the first female African-American philosophy professor to receive academic tenure in the United States and she has constantly challenged the art world with her groundbreaking work.
Hamburger Bahnhof’s exhibition, Adrian Piper. The Probable Trust Registry: The Rules of the Game #1-3 will present her latest major work for the first time. Questioning the way trust is built, Piper has created a contract that the visitor can sign with his/herself, promising to uphold a commitment with oneself to maintain specific ethics and values. Each participant will later receive a copy of the registry, thus forming a community of trust.
