Mona Hatoum

Mona Hatoum explores themes of displacement, marginalisation, exclusion and state control, which she examines against the backdrop of both her own biography and current social developments. Hatoum has developed a language in which familiar, domestic everyday objects are often transformed into foreign, threatening and dangerous things. The work Untitled (stick) (2011) seems to contradict the stability of a walking stick, as it turns out to be cast in polyurethane rubber and hardly able to support itself.

Hatoum has participated in numerous important group exhibitions, including Documenta (2017; 2002) and the Venice Biennale (2005; 1995). Recent solo exhibition include: Neuer Berliner Kunstverein; Georg Kolbe Museum; KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2022); IVAM - Institut Valencià d‘Art Modern, Spain (2021); Pulitzer Arts Foundation, St. Louis (2018); Menil Collection, Houston (2017); Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art (2017); Centre Pompidou, Paris / Tate Modern, London / Nykytaiteen Museo Kiasma, Helsinki (2015–2016); Mathaf: Arab Museum of Contemporary Art, Doha, Qatar (2014); Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Switzerland (2013).
