DOMESTIC OPTIMISM—a show by Emma Wolf-Haugh—opens this month in Austria.
An exhibition about mangled and mistold modernist legacies, the project begins with furniture, inanimate objects that come loaded with social connections and invisible histories. Through the displacement of cultural detritus Wolf-Haugh retells modernist architectural history in the collective key of queer-feminist and decolonial practices, continually unearthing filth in times of hygiene, and complicating things that were never simple to begin with.*
ACT ONE—MODERNISM: A LESBIAN LOVE STORY*
Opening: Thursday, September 24, 3 pm to 7 pm.
Exhibition on view through November 20.
Burggasse 4, Graz.
