The focus of Candice Breitz's artistic work is on the examination of the influence of family, society, or communities that form the basis of certain affiliations such as race, gender, nationality, or religion, as well as on the importance of the media, which creates new groups and associations. Feminist matters are the focus of this presentation. The Kunstmuseum Bonn presents a comprehensive solo exhibition about the artist Candice Breitz (*1972 in Johannesburg), who grew up in South Africa and lives in Berlin, with video installations and photographs from the last 25 years.  The exhibition presents works ranging from the early Ghost Series (1994), a series of photographs that reflected on the violence of whiteness under the apartheid regime at the moment of South Africa's political transformation in 1994, to more recent works such as TLDR (2017), a 13-channel video installation, which was created in collaboration with a community of South African sex workers, which deals with their worldwide struggle for basic human rights. For her most recent work Labour, which also was the inspiration for the exhibition title Breitz has filmed several women while giving birth. In addition to the exhibition documentation, the accompanying book offers an overview of all works since 2010.
