REPAIR. 5 ACTS at KW Institute for Contemporary Art is French-Algerian artist Kader Attia’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany. For KW, Attia develops a site-specific installation in five acts, which applies his concept of “repair” as reconstruction in a wider sense to political, cultural and scientific topics, examining their various interactions.
The exhibition places subjects Attia has been working with for several years in relation to each other, at times associatively and at times as framing an argument. He combines the European approach to its own colonial past within the framework of World War I with struggles for independence on the African continent, with current migration politics and with mechanisms of identity construction.
