When Love Fails US, Zürich, Bärengasse Museum, Zurich, Switzerland Mieke Bal & Michelle Williams Gamaker
This small “satellite exhibition” consisted of six works on monitors, and one projection. The idea was to present to the population of the university’s cultural studies program, and especially the large group of students in the MA program of curatorial studies directed by Dorothee Richter, an example of how to curate, or more modestly, put together a group of videos so that they become a meaningful ensemble. Given the young and academic audience we selected from the Madame B Project works related to the theme of love, its illusions, and the dangers of falling blindly for its lures and allures. For us this was also a nice counterpoint to the exhibition in Tallinn, which we had focused on the capitalism and consumerism.
The show runs until February 28th 2014.
