Last 10 days to see Progress vs. Regress as part of Melanie Bonajo’s solo exhibition “SINGLE MOTHER SONGS AT THE END OF NATURE” at the Frankfurter Kunstverrein.

The exhibition at Frankfurter Kunstverein presents several recent work groups. The experimental, semi-fictional documentary trilogy “Night Soil” consists of the three autonomous films “Fake Paradise” (2014), “Economy of Love” (2015) and “Nocturnal Gardening” (2016). In “Progress vs Regress” (2016). Melanie Bonajo examines the impact of modern inventions on social relations. She takes as a starting point the perspective of the elderly, who have witnessed some of the most extreme industrial, technological and digital revolutions. In collaboration with the artist a new work is produced for the show at Frankfurter Kunstverein, entitled “Progress vs Sunsets” (work in progress, 2017), the first spatial adaptation of her complex piece “Matrix Botanica – Non Human Persons”.
