Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen shows nine recent works made in the period 2001-2009, including the new audio video installation ‘Lungenflügel' (Lobe Of The Long). A key work in the exhibition is the self-interview ‘Kleines Vorstadthirn’ (Small Suburb Brain), which Rist works on intermittently since 1999. It is a personal political statement of her position as an environmentally aware, socially engaged artist. These videos will be displayed in a 1500m2 installation of semi transparant walls, designed by Pipilotti Rist.
