MOVING PLANTS at Palmengarten

Exhibition2 September – 18 October 2020Palmengarten Frankfurt

The group exhibition Moving Plants, curated by the students of the master’s programme Curatorial Studies, shows site-specific new productions that reflect on the movements and choreographies of and with plants. The Palmengarten, an area created by humans and populated by plants in the middle of the city, is a microcosm of different forms of life. How can a confusion of the choreography of the garden lead to a different narrative of the garden? What happens when we understand the movements of plants as the starting point for our contemplation? What is the subversive potential of other readings of movement? Nine artists address these questions in different media—film and sound work, installations, frescoes and performances. Thereby, the Palmengarten shows itself to be a place where dichotomies such as subject/object, nature/culture, people/plants, own/other are exposed and examined.

Participating artists:
Rachel Elizabeth Ashton, Zheng Bo, Cooking Sections, Rashiyah Elanga, Agnese Galiotto, Graham Hamilton, Zishi Han, Zac Langdon-Pole and Nina Nadig

Contributing curators:
Louisa Behr, Theresa Dettinger, Maren Feller, Lukas Flygare, Lorenzo Graf, Anna Holms, Asta von Mandelsloh, Anna Marckwald, Anneliese Ostertag, Sophia Scherer, Laura Schilling, Leonie Schmiese, Sofia Steffens, Teodora Talhos and Johanna Weiß in exchange with Dr. Stefanie Heraeus and Christina Lehnert, the gardeners, botanists and those responsible for the Palmengarten.
