"Show Me Your Shelves" Exhibition with James Gregory Atkinson and Janine Jembere

In a rare constellation, the exhibition Show me your Shelves! realizes an artistic dialogue between black artists from Germany and the US. The show brings together four artists reflecting on existing common structures, experiences, as well as differences between German Afro-Diasporic cultures and lifestyles and African American perspectives. The exhibition presents installations, films, sound and performance pieces in different branches of the Detroit Public Library.
Frankfurt based German-American artist James Gregory Atkinson shows a newly produced multi-layered installation of sound, video and text in the daily structure of the legendary public library of Detroit. Germany-based sound artist Janine Jembere presents an audio art work which traces different sonic strategies across times and spaces approaching sound as a sphere of empowering and analyzing, mobilising individually and collectively.
