White Song – Among Others
In her artistic practice Hajnal Németh creates musicals, operas, performances, films and photographs but most of all, through slight modifications of poems, songs and texts she encourages political statements and provokes reactions from the informed mind. In her upcoming exhibition “White Song – Among Others” at Ebensperger Berlin, Németh discusses political systems and prevailing normative beliefs in current Western societies without framing the topic in a heavy format but rather by bobbing and weaving with a bitterly humoristic approach coated in cultural and historical references.
Hajnal Németh was born in Hungary in 1972. She lives and works in Berlin. Her work has been shown in numerous institutions such as Kunstmuseum Stuttgart; RAM Rotterdam; Neuer Berliner Kunstverein; 54th Biennale di Venezia; Picasso Museum, Barcelona; Ludwig Museum, Budapest; Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; and at Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Kunsthal Rotterdam; Tel Aviv Museum of Art; Goethe Institut, Stockholm; NGBK, Berlin; Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf; Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid; Temporäre Kunsthalle, Berlin; MUMOK, Vienna; Musée d'art moderne et contemporain, Saint-Étienne; The Kitchen, New York; Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin; Renaissance Society, Chicago; Tate Modern, London; 2nd Berlin Biennale, KW Berlin; Casino Luxembourg; Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen.
