On February 8 at 19:00 the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin will be inaugurating the exhibition ‘Photography & Film 1978–1992’. Curated by Krist Gruijthuijsen the presentation will be on display there up until May 5, 2019
.
David Wojnarowicz (1954–1992) attained prominence in the New York East Village art scene in the eighties, where he produced a very broad range of artistic works involving a diversity of mediums. His oeuvre was both passionately political and intensely personal. Initially he exhibited in rough, shop window galleries, but his work quickly achieved national acclaim.

After being diagnosed with HIV AIDS at the end of the eighties, Wojnarowicz committed himself to working for the rights of the gay community. In that era, when a whole generation of artists died as a result of the AIDS epidemic, his artistic work also became unmistakably political. From the late seventies till his death in 1992, Wojnarowicz produced a body of work both conceptually rigorous and stylistically diverse.

The exhibition ‘Photography & Film 1978–1992’ is dedicated exclusively to Wojnarowicz’s photography and film work, presenting over 150 pieces, including photographs, trial prints, screen prints, 16mm and Super 8 films, as well as collaborative video works. After Berlin, the exhibition will be presented at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery in Vancouver (CA).
