Thunder in Your Throat
Thunder in Your Throat presents works by 11 international artists awarded the 2021 Berlin Senate’s work stipends in the visual arts: Navild Acosta & Fannie Sosa, Catherine Biocca, Kamilla Bischof, Giorgi Gago Gagoshidze & Tekla Aslanishvili, Anne Duk Hee Jordan & Pauline Doutreluingne, Theresa Kampmeier, Ezgi Kılınçaslan, Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro, Jens Pecho, Matheus Rocha Pitta, Eva Seufert.
What unites the featured artists is their preoccupation with contemporary culture, social grievances, the ongoing impacts of historical crimes, and emancipatory counter-movements while maintaining a highly unique artistic signature. They articulate a critical view of contemporary image politics, value creation mechanisms, economic inequality, and the exploitation of people and nature. Through visually powerful and atmospherically intense works, the artists expose sociopolitical practices and put them up for debate.
The publication can be purchased at local bookshops, via the website of Buchhandlung Walther König, and at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. Members of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein can buy the book at n.b.k. for the special price of 15.00 Euro.
