Exhibitions of the Günther Peill Foundation
In the fall of 2022, the Leopold-Hoesch-Museum will present the exhibition of the 2020-2022 scholarship holder Britta Thie.
Britta Thie's artistic practice feeds on a networked present in which media and communication technologies play a central role in shaping identity. In doing so, she refers to popular narrative formats and combines reality with fiction. Whereas video has so far served her primarily as an examination of social lifeworlds, actors, and codes, in her most recent paintings the equipment used for series productions itself becomes the protagonist. In Düren, Thie will also present the trailer of a film that has not yet been shot.
