Exposition : « Aspects of the Self 1972-1985 » by Susan HillerMOT International is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of Susan Hiller in Belgium. Focusing on key pieces from the 70s and 80s, Susan Hiller: Aspects of the Self 1972-1985 brings to light major themes addressed in the artist’s work, such as modes of self-representation, relations between conscious and unconscious elements in art practice and investigations of cultural materials whose potentials have been hidden, forgotten or repressed.

Exhibition : Endless (Group show)Repetition, both as a technical process and as a subject, has fascinated artists throughout history. Whether approached through printing techniques (engraving, etching, silkscreening) or arising from the artist's desire to faultlessly reproduce the same perfect gesture again and again (for example in the Asian practice of calligraphy), it is a recurrent theme in the history of art.
To welcome 2015, the Keitelman Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition devoted to the theme of repetition, showing works from the 20th and 21st centuries. In the 1960s repetition was an area that exponents of both Pop Art and conceptual art were frequently drawn to. The Pop Art movement saw in repetition a way of exploring the explosion of mass industrialisation and the phenomenon of advertising that was invading television and the...
Inspiration Photomaton au Musée de l'Elysée
Lorsque les premières cabines de photomaton furent installées à Paris en 1928, les surréalistes en firent un usage intensif et compulsif. En quelques minutes, et pour une somme modique, la machine leur offrait, dans le domaine du portrait, une expérience similaire à celle de l’écriture automatique. Depuis, des générations d’artistes ont été fascinées par le principe du photomaton. De Andy Warhol à Arnulf Rainer, en passant par Thomas Ruff, Cindy Sherman, ou Gillian Wearing, ils sont nombreux à s’être emparé du photomaton pour jouer avec leur identité, raconter des histoires, ou faire des mondes.

Susan Hiller THE J. STREET PROJECTThe series The J. Street Project by Susan Hiller (born in 1942 in Tallahassee, Florida) examines the difficult issues connected with the German-Jewish past in a unique and highly moving manner. As part of a residency in Germany sponsored by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the artist discovered and photographed street signs which still contain the word "Jude" – Jew. Susan Hiller's journey through Germany found artistic expression in over 300 photographs, a list of the places and streets concerned, a map of Germany, a video installation and a lengthy book. The artist's remembrance work reveals traces of the past and in this way highlights the painful loss of a once rich Jewish culture in Germany. Her photographs, which also show the surrounding town, village or landscape, are melancholy and mys...

Galerie Volker Diehl is proud to present new works by Susan Hiller. The following text is the Artist Statement about the series "The Curiosities of Sigmund Freud" that will be exhibited.
"The Curiosities of Sigmund Freud" is a set of nine prints, eight of which I based on glass slides intended to be viewed through a microscope. Slides of this type were generically called 'miniature curiosities for the microscope' and were popular family entertainment in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These slides belonged to Sigmund Freud and his family, and were fo...
