Who’s Werner? is a spacial conversation that explores artistic practices that have become intertwined and focuses on the role of a figure whose work is commonly kept a public secret. It looks into mutualistic relationships between artists in various disciplines and their assistants; producers; sometimes lovers. The exhibition reveals some of the misconceptions that exist around how a piece of art is made and the structures that keep those misconceptions intact, offering a telescopic view onto larger issues of “place,” equality of partnerships, sex and race. 

The show includes works by and for: John Baldessari, Denise Scott Brown, Elle Burchill, Riwi Collotype, Céline Condorelli, Lithuanian Cultural Council, Jurga Daubaraitė, Raoul de Keyser, Sophie de Serriere, Mien de Vriendt, Renée Fierens, Ian Hamilton Finlay (Estate), Yana Foqué, Erik Frydenborg, Grimm Gallery, Joan Hughson Gallery, Simon Harlow, Marc Hollenstein, Jan-Philipp Hopf, Laura Kaminskaitė, Angie Keefer, Maxine Kopsa, Norman Laich, James Langdon, Indrė Liutkutė, Jonas Lozoraitis, Jonas Mekas, Jonas Mekas Estate, Sebastian Mekas, Kunstverein (Gold) Members, Marian Goodman, Kristina Pallova, Raivo Plado, Audrius Pocius, Nerijus Rimkus, Paul Robbrecht, Peter & David Robson, Margot Sandeman (Estate), Lauren Sher, Lucy Skaer, Jeremy Eric Tenenbaum, Robert Venturi, CAC Vilnius.

The exhibition  serves as a prefix of the methodologies and interests of Kunstverein’s new director Yana Foqué, who has followed up Maxine Kopsa since September of this year. The topic explored within this exhibition will extend into Kunstverein’s program of the following years. Who’s Werner? will be on view until December 21, 2019.
