Taking a fraud case as its starting point, the exhibition Rheingold: Doing What Needs to be Done tells a story of temptation and entanglement between money, art, and politics. Track_14 is about being enmeshed in sprawling narratives until fiction becomesindistinguishable from experience. Collective longings for myths, fairy tales, and happy endings will be discussed, as well as how one’s own stories are told by others—whether furtively whispered or in art history.
