About

Curator: Anna Lena Seiser

Sharon Hayes uses photography, video, sound, and performance to explore the intersection of the personal and the political. Her multidisciplinary practice centers on the transformative power of language, which she explores in terms of historiography, collective subject formation, and political representation. As part of the artist’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) presents a group of the artist’s works from various creative phases, and, with Ricerche: two (2020), one of her most recent works. The ongoing series Ricerche borrows its structure from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s famous 1964 documentary Comizi d’amore (Love Meetings), for which the director traveled for six months throughout Italy, interviewing people of all ages and social classes about conditions of sex, sexuality, and related political and economic possibilities. For Ricerche, Hayes takes up Pasolini’s interest in interviewing groups of people, but focuses on specific groups for extended interviews. In Ricerche: two, Hayes interviews 22 members of two women’s American football teams about the sport and its challenges. As the conversation unfolds, the group reveals the complex conditions that influence collective understandings of gender, sexuality, equality, and community, as well as intersecting identities on and off the field.
