We are delighted to present the video MMJN (Future Perfect – The Future As It Will Have Been), 2013 by Aleksandra Bielas & Daniela Kneip Velescu from May 11 to June 1.

Who is actually sitting there when you step inside a museum or art institution? The subject of Aleksandra Bielas & Daniela Kneip Velescu's video MMJN (Future Perfect – The Future As It Will Have Been) is the unchanging work routines, endless repetitions and patterns connected with the activities at the reception of an art institution. The choreography of MMJN (Future Perfect – The Future As It Will Have Been), the way it alternates rhythmically between simultaneous answers and the ensuing pauses when the two women return to their own work, is dictated by the experiences of its two actresses. In their unrehearsed and humorously exaggerated answer game, the artists explore the role that their job assigns them at the reception as representatives of an art institution while the artistic realization and the looped repetitions gesture at their proper role as artists that seem as if forgotten at the ticket desk.

Aleksandra Bielas (b. 1980 in Tychy, Poland) lives in Berlin.
Daniela Kneip Velescu (b. 1982 in Bukarest, Romania) lives in Frankfurt am Main.
