Exhibitions

For the first time, works by artists in the collection such as Daniel Mayrit, Anna Krieps and Tatiana Lecomte, interact with new works by artists like Bieke Depoorter, Lisa Kohl, Cristina de Middel and Max Pinckers. A new installation by Marco Godinho, an artist already represented in the collection, will complete these presentations of varying approaches and artistic visions in the exhibition “True Fictions” by Arendt & Art.

Practical information

The exhibition will be on display at Arendt House, Luxembourg – Kirchberg from 23 March 2024 to 8 September 2024, every Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

About the exhibition

From its beginnings, photography has known how to blend reality and fiction. Today, as the boundaries between documentary photography and artistic or fine art photography have completely disappeared, a new genre known as “docufiction” is taking root in contemporary artistic circles. Photographers use this approach to explore universal themes, drawn from current affairs or with social, political or philosophical impact. By integrating a documentary style setting or creating a specific visual narrative, the selected artists play on a certain thought-provoking narrative ambiguity, whilst leaving the viewer free to interpret the images.
