Naama Tsabar

Berlin, Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart
dal 22 Marzo al 22 Settembre 2024

The exhibition

From 22.03.2024 to 22.09.2024, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart in Berlin hosts the first institutional solo exhibition in Germany dedicated to Naama Tsabar (born 1982, Israel - lives and works in New York). Task of her art is to overcome the boundaries of sculpture, music, performance and architecture, revealing hidden spaces and systems through interactive works and re-defining gendered narrative - shifting the viewing experience to a moment of active participation.

The exhibition focuses on three bodies of work with wall and floor works that also function as musical instruments and can be activate by the audience. The performance, created especially for the exhibition, is developed in close collaboration with a group of female identifying or gender non-confirming musicians and performers from Berlin and New York. With the use of felt in connection with sound, Naama Tsabar corresponds with works by Joseph Beuys, which are also shown in parallel in the Kleihueshalle.
The exhibition is the first in a series of contemporary presentations in dialogue with the presentation of Beuys’ works in the collection.

Curated by Ingrid Buschmann, curator at Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart, the solo show will be accompanied by the fourth edition of the Hamburger Bahnhof catalogue series, edited by Silvana Editoriale.
