Hirschhorn, who lives in Paris, sees art as a political-social obligation, and uses his works to show aspects of justice and injustice, power and powerlessness, and moral responsibility. Thomas Hirschhorn received the Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2000 and the Joseph Beuys Prize in 2004. Most recently he has constructed much-discussed installations at the Schinkel Pavilion in Berlin and at Manifesta 10 in Saint Petersburg (both in 2014). In 2011 he represented Switzerland at the 54th Venice Biennale and he showed his "Bataille Monument" at the Documenta11 in Kassel in 2002. This exhibition follows on from another installation work, ‘In-Between', which opened in July at the South London Gallery in London, UK.
‘Aftermath' runs from 5 September 2015 until 17 January 2016.
