For HOT MESS, Alicja Kwade is presenting her work ‘Hubwagen’ an interactive artwork free for everyone to try out. In the tradition of Duchamp’s ready-mades, Alicja playfully manipulated a pallet truck. It drives in circles around itself forever, completely non-functional and denying any economic progress.
Born in 1979 in Katowice, Poland, Alicja lives and works in Berlin. Her work was exhibited in multiple solo shows in museums and institutions such as the Langen Foundation, Neuss; the MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, Massachusetts; the Centre de Création Contemporaine Olivier Debré – CCCOD, Tours; the Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; the Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich; the YUZ Museum, Shanghai; the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, Michigan; the Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden; the Whitechapel Gallery in London; the Public Art Fund in New York.
