In House: Artist in Residence 2018

The new programme In House: Artist in Residence returns artists and their creative processes to Gropius Bau: building on the venue’s history and original identity as a decorative arts museum with numerous studios and workshops, Gropius Bau will once again become a site for artistic creation and production. Artists are invited to break free of existing institutional formats and rethink with us the concept of the exhibition venue for the twenty-first century.

Wu Tsang moved into her studio at Gropius Bau earlier this year. Her work explores various states of connectedness and ‘in-between’-ness within society and with regard to personal identity. Often this fluidity manifests itself as collaboration, or in the merging of disciplines, such as performance, moving image, sculpture, and installation. Wu Tsang’s work collapses the boundaries between documentary and fiction, as a way of reflecting, reformulating and destabilising the meanings associated with traditional forms of image creation.
