The exhibition Marion Baruch : DÉCALAGE curated by Ilse Lafer and Noah Stolz?at the gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig is the first comprehensive presentation of the artistic practice of the Jewish-Romanian artist Marion Baruch to the German-speaking world. The work of the now 92-year-old artist, who lives in Italy, is characterized by deviations as well as repeated aesthetic shifts and, thanks to the efforts of Noah Stolz (Baruch's curator and collaborator), has been known to an international audience for a few years now. The exhibition focuses on her most recent sculptures?made from textile waste from the prêt-à-porter industry?and contextualizes them through her early design objects as well as through the participatory projects of the 2000s, in which feminism and migration emerge as central and recurring themes against the backdrop of "hospitality."
