A project by M+M

The exhibition was produced in cooperation with Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz, where it was shown from 2 July to 1 October 2023.

In the exhibition and the eponymous artist’s book, My Last Will, 32 contemporary, international artists and artist groups respond to the question “What remains?”. They individually explore their legacy and try, each in their own way, to capture the core of what makes up their goals and interests with a central statement or a paradigmatic work. In doing so, they question their presumed significance for a future they will no longer experience and whose measures of value are still completely unknown to them.

“What remains?” is a question that gains a special topicality against the backdrop of the pandemic and a war in Europe, and the associated change in perspective and values.

The artists’ examination is designed as a free, open-ended experiment. The starting point for the engagement with the question is the artist book My Last Will, in which specially developed text, collage, and image contributions from the participants are collected. Five commissioned works were also created in the context of the exhibition.



M+M stands for the artistic and curatorial collaboration between Marc Weis and Martin De Mattia, who both live and work in Munich. In their curatorial projects, the filmmaker and artist duo initiate cooperative processes and invite artists to react to current issues. The collective film project The Scorpion’s Sting (2014), for example, is a reinterpretation in six individual episodes of the politically motivated film L’âge d’or by Luis Buñuel. The artistic focus of M+M is on narrative multi-channel film installations. The linearity of the narrative is suspended, creating a completely new sense of time. Their installations 7 Tage (2015) and Schlagende Wetter (2010) have been part of numerous international solo exhibitions, including at the Sprengel Museum Hannover, Museum Villa Stuck Munich, Museo d’Arte Moderna Bologna, Casino Luxembourg, VT Artsalon Taipei and MAC Montréal.
