Artist Talk: Monica Bonvicini

Dismantling the Master’s House

For Spike’s sixth artist talk at Soho House Berlin, Monica Bonvicini spoke with Spike's contributing editor Francesco Tenaglia, about her works and practice, with a focus on her show at Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin.


Monica Bonvicini is a visual artist born in Venice and based in Berlin. She emerged to international acclaim in the mid-1990s, winning the Golden Lion at the 1999 Venice Biennial, for a sculptural practice investigating the links between architecture, gender, and power. Exhibited since in prominent institutions and biennials around the world, her one-of-a-kind installations always critically reflect on their spatial contexts and are marked out by their biting humor and aesthetic directness – think scaffolds, texts, and lots of chains.
