Sitara Abuzar Ghaznawi - Emmy Hennings
|Simon Castets; Salome Hohl eds.
In the exhibitions held at Cabaret Voltaire and at the Swiss Institute in 2020, Sitara Abuzar Ghaznawi made evocative displays that created space for a deeper engagement with Hennings's life and art. For this publication, she has made new collages, combining found materials and working tools suck as adhesive strips, supplemented by graphic gestures and subjective indexes such as cigarette butts. By bringing the Hennings archive into dialogue with her own work, Ghaznawi considers the manner in which an individual's multiple identities guide the accumulation of personal experience, be they her own or those of a woman she never met.
