Pierre Klossowski & Roberte at the Schinkel Pavillon

The Pierre Klossowski exhibition Roberte Ce Soir at the Schinkel Pavillon is devoted to ‘Roberte’ who forms the core of the most comprehensive series of graphic and sculptural work by Klossowski, which is exhibited for the first time in Berlin. The exhibition examines Roberte’s roles in Klossowski’s oeuvre, particularly the border of fiction and reality: as Roberte holds features of Denise, Pierre Klossowski’s wife, though the person can not be equated with the fictive character. Not only relationships of gaze are addressed, shifting from resolute to submissive, but also the complexity of role-play between regimented and unbounded sexuality.
