Die Wahren Orte

Published on April 29, 2008

Taking its curatorial impetus from Captain Ahab’s observation that “true places” can’t be found on maps, Die Wahren Orte at Alexander Ochs brings together a really quite nice selection of recent work from China. The exhibition marks the gallery’s move to a new space on Sophienstrasse and will continuously evolve during its four month run. The highlight of the show is Yin Xiuzhen’s 15-meter-long van covered with a canopy of sewn garments titled Collective Unconscious.
