“h.arta group’s first US solo exhibition “Everyday Fragments” at MINI/Goethe-Institut Curatorial Residencies Ludlow 38 in New York will be based on two projects – The Most Beautiful Day of My Life (2007–2009) and Inspired by life (2010–2011) – and on a work realised in collaboration with Jen Kennedy and Liz Linden. By different means such as texts, drawings, photography, video and objects, the exhibition will explore questions such as: “What does it mean to be a feminist in the context of global capitalism?”, “How is dominant ideology shaping every aspect of life and how can small, everyday gestures be the basis for a meaningful resistance to this process?”. The project wishes to reflect on the possibility to affirm a multi- faceted feminist position, which is defined in a process of collaboration and that takes into consideration the importance of connecting theory to everyday practice.” (Tobi Maier)
