Press release

Pressemitteilung

Carrie Mae Weems is one of the most influential American artists working today. Over a career spanning more than four decades, she has created a complex body of multimedia work that grapples with the social and political issues of our times.

Her art reflects critically on discourses of post- and neo-colonialism, identity, gender, class and systemic dependencies of relations of power.

The exhibition People in Conditions at Galerie Barbara Thumm brings together narratives local and global, past and future, individual and collective, all unified by Weems’ performative style. Visitors can explore the full spectrum of her rich and multilayered oeuvre, with works on display spanning from the earliest stages of Weems’ career right up to the present day. Themes include the colonialist history of Western culture, the role of Black artists in this history and the hegemonic structures of social and institutional practices of representation.
