Alex Martinis Roe: To Become Two

Till–November 26, 2017
Badischer Kunstverein

To Become Two is the first comprehensive solo exhibition of artist Alex Martinis Roe in Germany. Martinis Roe’s project is driven by the parallel histories of several interconnected feminist communities in various places and imagines futures from them in conversation with groups of women from different generations. Over the last four years, she has worked dedicatedly with international feminist communities and institutions in Europe and Australia to develop a series of films and ongoing workshops. The exhibition at Badischer Kunstverein, To Become Two, is an installation comprised of six films, a two-part workshop, and multiple conversations.

One of the key works in the exhibition, the film Our Future Network (2016), was made during workshops and a meeting of women from younger generations. It presents 18 propositions for feminist collective politics now in dialogue with the historical practices explored in the other films. Martinis Roe’s project includes a workshop and public salon, which will engage contributors from Karlsruhe in a digestion of the feminist genealogies narrated in the exhibition.

Curated by Anja Casser and Didem Yazıcı
