Tania Mouraud in landmark exhibition at Haus der Kunst

11 September 2023

Haus der Kunst in Munich presents Inside Other Spaces. Environments by Women Artists 1956–1976 (8 September 2023 – 10 March 2024), an exhibition that brings together 11 pioneers of immersive art: Judy Chicago, Lygia Clark, Laura Grisi, Aleksandra Kasuba, Lea Lublin, Marta Minujín, Tania Mouraud, Maria Nordman, Nanda Vigo, Faith Wilding, and Tsuruko Yamazaki. 

It the first show of its kind to painstakingly reconstruct 12 key immersive works by these women artists. The exhibition, curated by Marina Pugliese and Andrea Lissoni with Anne Pfautsch,  follows three years of research and development and reframes the canon by presenting women’s fundamental role in the development of immersive art.

Tania Mouraud’s room We used to know (1970−2023) has visitors experience intense light and sweltering heat. They are described as being “engulfed in a feeling of inexorable anxiety”. 

The public programme of the exhibition includes a symposium on November 11 on new forms of exhibition making and new approaches to conservation and transmission. That evening Tania Mouraud will premiere a live electronic music composition inspired by family history and the history of Haus der Kunst itself.

Inside Other Spaces has already been hailed as “an inspiring and immersive new exhibition” (Wallpaper) and a “must-see museum show” this fall (Artsy).
