Over the course of their long-term collaboration Antje Ehmann and Harun Farocki were montage artists with a passion for cinema.

Men in Trouble aims to create a third space that goes beyond the gallery and the cinema space, an idea that both artists conceived together back in 2006 with the exhibition Cinema like never before (Generali Foundation, Vienna, 2006; Akademie der Künste, Berlin, 2007). For this project they thought about the gallery space as “as a cutting room, a laboratory for cinema”.

On this occasion, the exhibition re-visits that same concept and questions the representation of the male crisis and its archetypes in cinema (history).
