Produced on the occasion of Carolyn Lazard’s exhibition at Kunstverein Braunschweig in 2021. Hintertür points to the mutual embodiment of both the filmmaker and the viewer, animating questions of agency and access concerning phenomenological cinema. In addition, Lazard inverts Kunstverein Braunschweig’s spatial logic by implementing architectural interventions that fundamentally change how audiences navigate the building. In historic buildings, physical barriers to access are normally regulated by Braunschweig’s historic preservation codes. Alternatively, artistic interventions are permitted to make minor changes to historic buildings. For this exhibition, Lazard developed Remise ramp (2021), a ramp connecting two rooms, and Remise signs (2021), an alternative sign system. With texts by Jule Hillgärtner and Nele Kaczmarek.
