The exhibition I never know how to explain...explores different moments and views of geopolitical regions and their structures, which define national super- identities, yet may not appear to do so Alban Muja's work continues to question the structures that constitute the public, hinting at different political and social patterns that rely on arbitrary aesthetic moments.How can the visible elements of society indicate its hidden background? How do different social and political objectives, which create various identities, surface in traditional and conservative societies? This is probably one of the crucial mechanisms in Muja's work, which seeks to reveal the suppressed backgrounds of societies of which are part.
Some of Muja's projects analyse a particular type of otherness - the wrong side of the mirror, in Lacanian terminology - which is necessary to understand the comprehensive identity of self with all its inner tensions and conflicts. Although Muja's work poses 'universal' questions of engaged art that can be applied to any political system, he juxtaposes them with his own personal and intimate stories about his personal relationships, the places he lives in or visits or the personal issues that he discovers.

A key part of Moyra Davey’s artistic work are her “mailers,” photographs folded as envelopes that she sends to family members, friends, and acquaintances. In her exhibition „Burn the Diaries“ at mumok Moyra Davey reflects in fragments of memory and quotations on her own past and relates it to Jean Genet, whose path she also traces in literary terms. Curated by Matthias Michalka. Feb 21th –May 25th, 2014.
Bernhard Cella baut eine Ateliersituation im Kunstverein Hamburg auf in der Form und künstlerische Produktion verhandelt werden. Graue Farbe, spärliche Beleuchtung, doch eine aufwendige vor allem materialintensive Intervention in den Raum ist das. Gleichzeitig zurückhaltend und fordernd ist auch das Programm für diesen Raum. Künstlerkollegen werden eingeladen zu Gesprächen. Sie müssen nicht liefern, nicht kreativ sein, doch es werden Abgüsse von Körperteilen gemacht. Gleichzeitig intim und mechanisch, emotional und rational nicht zu beschreiben mit den üblichen Vokabular der Kategorisierungen.
