On a rug a number of balls formed out of clean white snow are placed very orderly in relation to their size. One of them David Hammons holds in his hand. The others are in front of him displayed for sale on the ground. This performance was staged in 1983 in New York on a corner of Cooper Square amongst other street sellers. Elena Filipovic gathers material documenting this iconic piece, part of an oeuvre that has only recently become well known. She places Hammon’s work, purposefully elusive and hard to grasp, in the context of his critique of questions of race in the United States and in the mechanisms of the Art World.

The catalogue Traces documents the oeuvre of Cuban-born American artist Ana Mendieta (1948 – 1985). In her works she takes agency for and ownership over her body and creates often ephemeral works for which she almost exclusively used natural materials. The female body and the question of belonging are standing in the center of her practice. Mendieta realized many of her performances in nature, which she then documented on film – photographic and moving images. Poetically she expresses in her drawings, sculptures and performances an idea of an inseparable relationship between earth and humanity.
