We are living in a culture of permanent talking, investigation, control, public confessions and self-staging. In the centre of this spectacle of systematic interogation and communication lie in the end one of the oldest cultural techniques: the interview. The exhibition project »talk talk« thematises the power and art of this method of questioning in the context of contemporary art forms and exhibits it as an artistic practice with several chosen works.
