Nevin Aladag lets wind and rain play music. She follows the sound of traces she finds in the city and makes objects sound melodies seemingly by themselves. The result is a perceptive and always humorous "score" that has a quality that is as ironic as it is poetic. Aladag's works are represented in many international collections and are regularly shown in exhibitions and biennials worldwide. The Museum Villa Stuck is showing her most comprehensive solo presentation to date, combining famous groups of works, such as the "Music Room Athens" shown at documenta 14, with a few surprises. The accompanying catalogue offers over 200 mostly full-page illustrations. Essays by renowned art scholars such as Rachel Jans and Adam Szymczyk and a contribution by the multi-award-winning writer Ulrike Draesner, conceived especially for the book, illuminate the artist's work from different perspectives. The special embossing that Aladag developed for the cover gives the publication a special artistic touch.
