Language for Sale

International group exhibition with works by Harun Farocki, Nicoline van Harskamp, Stefan Panhans, Elemér Ragályi, Peter Rose, Kim Schoen and John Smith

Kim Schoen: Baragouin, 2021 (video still)

The international group exhibition Language for Sale puts nonsense at its center. Laced with humor, the exhibited works engage with rhetorical and linguistic moments of transition—a change marked by the increasing appearance of nonsense language.


eBook - The Doubt of the Stage Prompter

The publication "The Doubt of the Stage Prompter" by Sven Johne and Jumana Manna is now available as an e-book for free.

The book was created in context of the 2015 double exhibition under the same name and contains an essay and conversations.
