Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig
27/10/2017 — 07/01/2018
The photographs of Chinese artist Ren Hang (1987-2017) thrive on their unbashful and provocative visual appeal. With the mark of explicit but elegant eroticism, they communicate through poetic, political, as well as humorous imagery. To this date, the artist’s polarizing photographs were only scarcely presented in Germany’s museums. The MdbK is now providing an all-encompassing insight into Ren Hang’s oeuvre, the first global exhibition of this sort ever since the artist’s suicide this year.
The exhibition is realized through cooperation with Ostlicht, Vienna.
Concert with Janne Mark (vocals), Esben Eyermann (bass) and Henrik Gunde (piano). In co-operation with ACT

»Leipzig ist kompliziert und, wenn es sein muss, radikal. Der Wendeschock sass tief, die Gentrifizierung aber läuft. Und dabei hilft – natürlich – die Kunst mit einer lebendigen Szene.«
»Hinter gefühlt jedem Fenster macht einer Kunst«
