In occasion of Berlin Art Week, this show looks at Shilpa Gupta’s extensive body of work. Works such as the installation Words Come From Ears (2018), will be seen for the first time in Germany in the Showroom of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, and Untitled (A spoken poem in a bottle, 2018) which revolves around the examination of systems which seek to control. A poetic text that changes over time, as well as a confrontation with collected poems by persecuted poets, draw attention to imposed boundaries and the will to transgress them, revealing the subversive potential of the movement of bodies and ideas.
