Mona Hatoum at Berlin Glas e.V.!
Berlin Glas e.V. is honoured to be hosting Mona Hatoum in the studio as Artist in Resident begining on the 31st of March! The internationally acclaimed Hatoum, whose work addresses the tenuousness that exists between reality and illusion, will spend 4 days working on new ideas. We can´t wait to help Mona Hatoum experiment and translate her conceptions into sculptures!
Mona Hatoum was born in Beirut to Palestinian parents. She moved to London in 1975 to study art at the Byam Shaw School and the Slade School of Art. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1995 and has been featured at the Tate, in Documenta, the Venice Biennale, Glasstress, and most recently at the Mathaf, Museum of Modern Art in Qatar.
We are also very excited to have Jeff Ballard in Berlin as her gaffer with Jesse Günther assisting him! Both Jeff and Jesse will be in Berlin for a few weeks, teaching workshops and gaffing in the studio. Check out the programme schedule and sign-up for a class with one of these 2 great instructors!
