From November 1, 2012 to February 3, 2013, the Schirn will be presenting numerous contemporary artworks with a view of exploring the topic of the disappearing private sphere and the “public nature of the intimate.” Privacy—today this almost seems like a concept from the past. It hardly appears apt in times when everything is posted on Facebook, from your favorite recipe to your current relationship status. Exhibitionism, self-revelation, the urge to tell stories, the pleasure of presenting and voyeurism are the social strategies of our day and age—a structural change of the public sphere has long since taken place.
