UN. KNOWN SPACES exhibition


the other day i meet maurice at work as he was just about to finish the set up of the latest exhibition: united nations extented in the museums quartier in vienna. 

inspired by the essay “of other spaces“ by french philosopher michel foucault and the phenomenon „worlds inside the world”, maurice de martin and janina jenke chose to focus on the united nations headquarters in vienna, new york, and nairobi as three different “heterotopies“ positioned in three different urban environments. 

un.known spaces artistically unfolds the complex UN-universe through a series of 70 self-interpresentations by involved individuals that are recoreded and can be seen until the 9th of may.
