Kunsthalle Basel – Zhana Ivanova
Kunsthalle Basel received a Grand International Presentations for the production and presentation of the new work Counterpoint by Zhana Ivanova, as the third iteration in a long-term solo presentation with various chapters entitled Ongoing Retrospective. In this third chapter Ivanova resumes her investigation of conditions in which unspoken social and power relations play out. With Cointerpoint she creates a ‘performative constellation’ in which script, film and live performance come together. The performance is based on Die Schachnovelle by Stefan Zweig, in which the protagonist plays a chess game with himself in his thoughts.
The exhibition takes place from 31 August until 16 September 2018. (Performance times: Thursdays, 7–7:30 pm and Friday to Sunday daily from 3–3:30 pm.)
