Zineb Sedira
Dreams Have No Titles

24.02.2023 to 30.07.2023
Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart

Zineb Sedira's Dreams Have No Titles marks the international debut of the artist's project for the French Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale, which is being shown at Hamburger Bahnhof for the first time in Germany. Mixing film, sculpture, photography, and performance, the French-Algerian artist weaves together parts of her own biography with the history of cinemato-graphic co-productions and activist films within the context of France, Algeria and Italy.

Sedira (born 1963) has conceived the exhibition space as a movie set where the decors of several films provide the backdrop of a live shoot in which fiction and documentary, the personal and the collective come together. In Dreams Have No Titles the artist not only deals with an important turning point in the history of avant-garde film production. She also presents us with a cautionary tale about the failure of an emancipatory dream that for many people remains an unfulfilled promise.

On the occasion of 59th Venice Biennial the publication Dreams Have No Titles by Zineb Sedira was published.

Curated by Yasmina Reggad, and Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, directors Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart.

This exhibition is made possible by the Freunde der Nationalgalerie and is supported by Institut Français Paris and Germany and the French Ministry of Culture.
