With Ich brauche wenig Wirklichkeit (I need little reality, sourced from an interview with Heinrich Böll) the GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst opens the first institutional solo show of Berlin-based artist Nina Hoffmann. Hoffmann’s artistic work revolves around human desire. What do we desire and why? Do the objects of our desire exist in factual reality? Or do we tend to pursue mere ideas and projections? Where do the borders between reality and projection/ideal lie? How are they defined? Is it possible to render them visible? Hoffmann is interested in the narratives of everyday life which are common to us all: our daily routines, our aspirations, the factors that shape our perceptions, the courses of action that we pursue to fulfill our desires.
