Nachwirkung, an installation by Thomas Hirschorn, has opened at the Kunsthalle Bremen.

The gallery explains: “In his most recent works, Hirschhorn has been investigating the idea of ruins and the state in which previously concealed things become tangible. For example, his work Abschlag, displayed at the Manifesta 10 in St. Petersburg, demonstrated how the image of a ruin stands both for the collapsed facade of a destroyed building as well as forgotten history.

“Although a building or history itself can remain comprehensible in its entirety even in a state of collapse, a glimpse behind the facade opens a new vista into things that were previously concealed. The work in Bremen continues to play with the theme of concealment and revelation and apply it to the specific situation in Bremen.”
