Opening: Saturday, 14 October, 7 pm

The group exhibition *INNEN brings together artistic positions that take words or language as their starting point. How do language, words and letters shape our bodies and the spaces around us? How can language and dialogue be depicted – other than through writing? In the struggle for words, in the clearing of throats, in the joining of sounds, word-images and image-words emerge. The presented works examine and negotiate – from different angles and partly from a feminist position – the performative aspects of language and written signs in relation to identities, institutions and spaces. The exhibition takes the upcoming gender-appropriate change of name of Künstlerhaus Bremen in spring 2024 as an opportunity to reflect on the role and impact of words, language, and typography. The works brought together in the exhibition draw a horizon of possibility of language and conversation as well as the utopian potential that lies between *INNEN and outside, between idea and mediating word or sign.

The exhibition is accompanied by events that tie in with the series of events “Ein Haus für Künstler*innen” (“A House for Fe*Male Artists”) that began in the fall of 2022.
