Ulla von Brandenburg in conversation with Markus Schinwald

Exhibition talk

In her films, drawings, and installations, artist Ulla von Brandenburg explores how things are staged and made theatrical, the relationship between audience and actors, the rules of performance, and the overlap between reality and illusion. In her first solo exhibition in Austria, Innen ist nicht Außen (Inside Is Not Outside9, Ulla von Brandenburg will show her new film Die Straße (The Street) as part of an installation which she created specially for Secession’s main gallery.
