Yalda Afsah: Every word was once an animal 25.6.–4.9.2022
Cooperation: Kunstverein München
The human relationship with animals, and the agency surrounding that interaction is critical to the work of the German-Iranian artist Yalda Afsah. Together with Kunstverein München, HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiemark presents her first institutional solo exhibition, focusing on questions of power, care, and control in relation to domestication. Using three examples — bullfighting, horse dressage, and pigeon breeding — she examines the blurred boundaries between affection and identification with animals on the one hand, as well as submission and human domination on the other.
Every word was once an animal is initiated by Kunstverein München where the exhibition is on view from January 15 to April 3, 2022, and realized in cooperation with the HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiermark.
