The exhibition Throwing Gestures scrutinizes gesture as a physical movement that gains its significance through political attribution, as well as its media (in) visibility. Throwing Gestures examines media representations of (political) gestures, including their translation, displacement and (de-)contextualization, verbalization, as well as video recognition and cinematic forms. The artworks analyze power structures, be they visible or invisible, or manifested in material forms such as architecture and technology.
The works presented in the exhibition were developed within the last two year’s project labor.
The resulting works are supplemented by works of guest artists representing important references in the research process, while also incorporating significant aspects for the examination of gestures.

The spatial staging was developed through a process of critical discourse with Alexander Koch.
