AMNA ELHASSAN. DECONSTRUCTED BODIES – IN SEARCH OF HOME

4 Novembre 2022 - 12 February 2023
SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE FRANKFURT

With her paintings and prints, artist Amna Elhassan (*1988) portrays the socio-political changes and cultural resistance in Sudan with a special focus on the women in her country. In the Rotunda, which is open to the public, the SCHIRN presents the artist's first large-scale mural DECEMBER (2022), which she conceived and realized specifically for the space.In the large-scale panoramic painting, Elhassan processes the crushing of the Democracy Movement in Sudan and makes reference to the Khartoum Massacre of June 3, 2019, with which government forces violently ended the peaceful December Revolution that had led to the overthrow of the 30-year dictatorship of former President Omer Al-Bashir with nationwide protests and a three-month occupation of the square in front of the military headquarters in Khartoum.

In addition, Elhassan is showing 23 paintings and prints created since 2019, some of them especially for the exhibition, in the inner Rotunda corridor on the second floor.
