Christine Hill (b.1968, Binghampton, New York. Lives and works in Berlin and Brooklyn, NY.) Christine Hill started the ‘Volksboutique’ in Berlin in the early ‘90s as an informal space for welcoming, serving tea, trading cheap clothes and discussing everything from the weather to identity politics. ‘Volksboutique” was then extended as a concept and space and started to exists as franchises in different places, such as Documenta X in Kassel. Christine is now running a weekly ‘Volksboutique Small Business’ in the front space of her studio in Berlin, where production meets value negotiations, proprietor and buyer meets across the counter, trade and exchange are questioned and explored. Slogan posters on the wall set a critical tone and suggest new rules of conduct and reversing roles and relations Recent solo exhibitions and projects include Hotel Volksboutique, Museum of Contemporary Art, Leipzig, Small Business at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, New York, Do-It-Yourself Bauhaus, Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, Germany, Revolution Flea Market, Galerie EIGEN+ART, Berlin. Christine is a professor at the Bauhaus University, Weimar.
