The Museum Folkwang will be presenting the third and final part of the video trilogy that Candice Breitz has been working on since 2015. Beginning with Love Story and continuing to TLDR that was made in collaboration with a community of sex work activists in Cape Town, the trilogy has focused on the conditions under which empathy is produced, reflecting on a media-saturated global culture in which strong identification with fictional characters and celebrity figures runs parallel to widespread indifference to the plight of those facing real world adversity. The third part of the trilogy, as yet untitled, will receive its international debut in Essen. The work will remain in the collection of the Museum Folkwang.
