Janaina Tschäpe is exhibiting in the group show ‘Blueprint’ at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Tucson. At the heart of the exhibition is an aim to unite artists and architects with wide-ranging and disparate practices under a single, uniting theme: using the “blueprint” module to explore the origin of their practice. First conceived in 1999, the exhibition was a low-budget, DIY effort by and about a group of emerging artists (“ambitious and broke” artists, in the words of curator/artist Sebastiaan Bremer). A decade and a half later, the artists’ practices have matured, and Blueprint remains a fascinating recent historical document and a record of the artists’ creative trajectory and evolution.
