Imhof is a phenomenon. Her combinations of painting, installation, choreography, and music draw inspiration from art history and underground culture and address the dynamics of power. Her work is unsettling and uncomfortable, and always impressive. Imhof examines physicality, collectivity, loneliness, desire, greed, fear, guilt and penance. For this, she uses various media to appeal to all our senses. With Faust she won the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2017 and her previous shows at Tate Modern and Palais de Tokyo were a sensation. This will be Imhof's first solo show in the Netherlands. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Stedelijk and the Hartwig Art Foundation, initiated by Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow.
