The Kunstmuseum Stuttgart presents the first major retrospective survey in Germany of the work of Candice Breitz (born 1972 in Johannesburg, lives in Berlin).
Love Story, a new eight-channel installation, will be shown in this exhibition for the first time. Featuring Alec Baldwin and Julianne Moore, Love Story is based on and includes extensive interviews with José Maria João (Angola), Mamy Maloba Langa (Democratic Republic of the Congo), Sarah Ezzat Mardini (Syria), Farah Abdi Mohamed (Somalia), Luis Ernesto Nava Molero (Venezuela) and Shabeena Francis Saveri (India). The work is produced by Outset Germany (Berlin), the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne) and the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.
A second new work, as yet untitled, has been commissioned by the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart to occupy the central double-height space at the core of the museum.
Additionally, the exhibition will feature Babel Series (1999), Four Duets (2000), Mother + Father (2005), Working Class Hero (A Portrait of John Lennon) (2006), Factum (2010), Legend (A Portrait of Bob Marley), and four large-scale photographs from the Monuments series (2007).
A catalogue including essays by Erika Balsom, Sven Beckstette, Tom Holert and Carolin Wurzbacher will be published parallel to the exhibition.
