The Art of the Deal
A project by Franziska Pierwoss
November 19–30, 2018

The Art of the Deal invites three Minnesotan families to star in a reality TV show and to openly discuss family politics during this year’s holiday season.

40 years after its birth, reality TV seems to have become an integral part of people’s life, no matter which country or continent, whether in the US, in Germany, or elsewhere. And more than a decade of Keeping up with the Kardashians has certainly shaped the way realities are being performed all over the world.

Following a docu-style aesthetic, The Art of the Deal depicts the private sphere of three families that will serve as a platform to debate and stage questions of individual behavioral patterns but also collective dynamics. During holidays, unlike any other time of the year, the discrepancy between personal expectations and the actual reality of a family gathering frequently results in a drama that usually is resolved within seconds.

Pivotal, universally valid questions will emerge in this process.  
How do families communicate today? What verbal and body language is at play?

Simultaneously, more mundane questions will arise: Who negotiates the best deals around the dinner table? Who will be the most charming in finding excuses? Who speaks too much and who prefers to remain silent?

One episode of The Art of the Deal will be screened at the Goethe in the Skyways space; further episodes will follow on the Goethe in the Skyways website.

 

Collusion, collision, illusion
A group show with Constant Dullaart, Karl Holmqvist, Hanne Lippard, Laure Prouvost, and Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt
December 3-21, 2018

Elfriede Jelinek: "Why do you so rarely tell the truth?"
Heiner Müller: "Because you need a lot of imagination to tell the truth."
(Interview with Heiner Müller, 1987)

Rudy Giuliani: "When you tell me that, you know, he should testify because he’s going to tell the truth and he shouldn’t worry, well, that’s so silly because it’s somebody’s version of the truth. Not the truth…"
Chuck Todd: "Truth is truth."
Giuliani: "No, no, it isn’t truth. Truth isn’t truth."
(exchange between Rudy Giuliani and NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet The Press, quoted in: Caroline Kenny, “Rudy Giuliani says ‘truth isn’t truth,’” CNN, August 19, 2018)
