Curated by Anna Schneider, Interiorities. Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Leonor Antunes, Henrike Naumann, Adriana Varejão at Haus der Kunst in Munich asks “What happens inside us” in a time characterized by an increasing externalization of the interior, for example through social media. Taking the historical subject of interior painting as a point of departure, the show examines transnational and multiple identities that are at the same time fragmented and complex, as demonstrated in the work of these three artists.
