The exhibition Worin unsere Stärke besteht (“Where our strength lies”) shows the work of fifty women artists from three different generations who were born in the GDR (German Democratic Republic). Working with different media and diverse genres, the artists investigate complex themes, producing works that defy categorisation, and that cannot be reduced to a single aesthetic or subject. Some of the artists were already active during the GDR period. The exhibition does not address any narrative relating to the GDR, nor does it historicise art from the GDR. Rather, it opens out to artists’ biographies, approaching the question of how lived experience influences artistic thematic preoccupations. A small number of the works exhibited were produced during the GDR period.

The exhibition is accompanied by a program of events and a collection of texts.

Paris History Museum, 23 Rue de Sévigné, 75003 Paris, France

In a new collaboration, the artists Luise Schröder and Chedly Atallah cross their artistic practice around personal and collective memory through the prism of the material: stone. If stone is a symbol of time, of hardness, of solidity, it is here the crumbling of stories, a witness to the past and the raw material of a multitude of futures to come. During a residency at the Ateliers Médicis in 2022, the artists draw up a metaphor for the superimposition of layers of history in Clichy sous bois-Montfermeil. Memories are intertwined: destruction, renovation, resistance, gentrification, extensions of fictitious and real territories ... Pierres sans répit (engl. Unrelenting stones) is presented in public space as a collection of objects, face to face with photographic archives, traces of forgotten histories and invisible moments are revealed. From the periphery to the centre, and vice versa (wallpapers on the fence of the future metro station, flag at the Ateliers Médicis and an object at the Museum Carnavalet - Paris History Museum), Pierres sans répit weaves a strong link between the capital and the suburbs.

The intervention was produced with the support of the Société du Grand Paris and carried out with the help of the Archives of the city of Clichy-sous-Bois, the Archives of the city of Montfermeil, L'établissement public foncier d'Île-de-France, Grands travaux de Marseille, Rihab Abdessalem Kanouni & Moslem Mishmastnehi.
