L’autre moi – a reflection on Claude Cahun & Marcel Moore

02.07.19 / 20h / 8pm

Artist talk \ Dialogue \ Q&A

The danish writer Kristina Stoltz has been invited to participate into the exhibition at Lothringer13 Halle and we have the wonderful opportunity to welcome her in Munich.

As a specialist into Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore’s biography and work, she just published a book, that is written after yearlong research. The novel Cahun is a free interpretation and imagination that leans into the all possible details you can gain in the interesting life of the couple, work relation and sisterhood of Cahun & Moore.

In a close cooperation Kristina Stoltz & Lene Harbo Pedersen selected the most relevant excerpts from the book & photographs for the exhibition. The text excerpts are exclusively translated into English & German and draws upon an observation and strengthen that behind the name ‚Cahun‘ a couple appears, not one but two very special people Lucy Schwob also known as Claude Cahun & Susanne Malherbe with the artist name Marcel Moore. Both with more than one identity, working with multiple genders and during the wartime with multiple voices – and making a very special mark in the history of arts.

The evening will be precious hot hours with Kristina Stoltz talk, a dialogue with the curator and open talk with the audience on twins, twinning and the queer world.

The talk will be held in English

The translation was made possible with a generous support by the Danish Art Foundation.
