Pictures and stories on a youth spent between media society and popular culture

The former air-raid shelter at the Haus der Kunst has been transformed into a venue for the presentation of international works on video that deal with the theme of a youth spent in media society and popular culture. Facets of socialization, hybrid patterns of behavior, and international influences appear in a multiplicity of forms. The exhibition presents a fascinating combination of social and personal dimensions, providing a wealth of material that virtually demands to be explored. And it is not only present-day generations that see themselves reflected here. Tobias Zielony’s Behind the Block or Martin Brand’s Station, for instance, capture a zeitgeist that has matured out of the past. The last thirty years are also called to mind in Rosemarie Trockel’s Yvonne, Rineke Dijkstra’s The Buzzclub, Liverpool, UK / Mysteryworld, Zaandam, NL, and especially in the eponymous story by Tracey Emin, Why I Never Became a Dancer.

Exhibition schedule: Goetz Collection, Haus der Kunst, Munich, September 30, 2011–April, 1, 2012
