Exhibition overview

The title of this fifth presentation of works from Sammlung Goetz at Haus der Kunst is borrowed from an early video work by Mona Hatoum from 1983. It is based on the material of a performance: While Mona Hatoum's voice repeatedly says, "So Much I Want to Say", images depict a woman's face being obscured by men's hands. Born in Beirut in 1952, Hatoum's works focus on individuals who are socially marginalized and silenced because of their origin and gender. 

Works by female artists constitute nearly half of the pieces in Ingvild Goetz's collection of media art. These works represent and illustrate the key stages of the feminist discourse and feminist film theory since the 1970s. With works by Chantal Akerman, Andrea Bowers, Rineke Dijkstra, Cheryl Donegan, Mona Hatoum, Lucy McKenzie & Paulina Olowska, Tracey Moffatt, Ulrike Ottinger, Ryan Trecartin, and Rosemarie Trockel.
