Potsdamer Str. 81b 10785 BerlinHua International is pleased to present the Berlin edition of Green Go Home, a collaborative project initiated by the internationally acclaimed artists Tomas Vu and Rirkrit Tiravanija. Green Go Home continually modifies its mediums, manifesting differently each time that it occupies a new landscape. Conceived as a form of dynamic dialogue with the looming protests and civil unrest throughout the world today, this context-responsive undertaking brings together found images and evocative text that equally recall the fragmented language of self-actualization found on many social media platforms and the poetic, agit-prop of historical movements like the Situationist International. In the imagery itself, revolutionaries like Angela Davis rub shoulders with pop cultural figures such as David Bowie, Tupac Shakur, and Barbarella, or artists Frida Kahlo and Ana Mendieta, and scenes from films or a found photo of a historic beauty pageant. The grid of images takes on a polyphonic relationship to Tiravanija’s written statement, thereby interweaving layers of interpretation, readings, and misunderstandings.
