Kunstmuseum Basel presents The Heart of Relations, a major solo exhibition by Andrea Büttner. Since the early 2000s, Büttner “images” on such subjects as labour, poverty, shame, forms of coexistence, and belief systems that have had a far-reaching impact on society. The exhibition shows a confluence of narrative lines, from the benevolence of monastic communal life to coercive labour in biodynamic agriculture under National Socialism. The Heart of Relations runs until 1 October 2023. (Image: Andrea Büttner, Erntende, 2021, woodcut on paper, 118 x 119 cm, unique.

Andrea Büttner is taking part in the exhibition YOYI! Care, Repair, Heal on view from September 16 till January 15 at Gropius Bau in Berlin. This group exhibition whose title comes from a ceremonial song, dance and coming together central to Tiwi culture gathers the works of 26 artists and collectives. Through video works, installations, paintings and performances, the invited artists address issues such as the politics of health, the resilience of Indigenous knowledge systems, forms of kinship, fair land use and its distribution, decoloniality and the rights of the non-human, all entangled with various concepts of care, repair and healing.
Johanniterkirche Feldkirch presents a solo exhibition by Andrea Büttner in partnership with Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein. It opens today, July 22 and it will be on view until September 23, 2022. Büttner’s work Shepherds and Kings (2017) consists of a double slide projection of 160 historical images, showing how shepherds and kings have been depicted in Nativity scenes throughout art history. This comparative presentation of Büttner’s assembled collection of historical images follows no particular chronology or style, engaging instead in an iconographic exploration of gestures and their implicit resonances with qualities of shame, vulnerability and dignity.

On December 2nd at 8pm Andrea Büttner and Mason Leaver-Yap (KW Berlin) will have an online conversation on Büttner's newly published book Shame (Koening Books, 2020).
From shaming and shamefulness to shame-avoidance and shamelessness, the experience of shame influences our social behaviours, decision-making abilities, and desires. Shame determines what we show and what we hide. And yet, as an emotion that begs for its own concealment, what is the structure and appearance of shame? How does shame interact with the realm of the visible, and where does it surface in visual culture?
