Punta della Dogana Venice - Dancing with Myself

Curated by Martin Bethenod, Florian Ebner and Anna Fricke, the collective exhibition ‘Dancing with Myself’ at Punta della Dogana stems from the collaboration between the Pinault Collection and the Folkwang Museum in Essen, where a first version of the show was presented in 2016.
‘Dancing with Myself’ faces the primordial importance of the artist’s role as actor and material of his own creations, from the 1970s to today. The exhibition brings together a great range of artistic practices and languages (photography, video, painting, sculpture, installation…), cultures, geographic origins, generations and experiences, to establish a tension between extremely different artistic approaches: melancholy of vanity, ironic play with identity, political biography and existential questioning, the body as sculpture, effigy or fragment of its symbolic substitute.
