Monika Weiss, who had her solo exhibition at the Kentler International Drawing Space in 2006 (Limen II: Multi-media installation, drawing and performance), was invited by curator Charlotta Kotik to participate in the group show celebrating Kentler's 25th Anniversary. Weiss' work in the exhibition, Diptych 1 from Two Laments Drawing Series (2015) is part of her most recent project, Two Laments (19 Cantos) which discusses political forms of collective memory (monuments), commemorating victims of rapes in India. The political body is also referred here to the body of the city. It is comprised of 19 videos with sound and text by the artist, photographs, and drawings.

A brochure with an essay by Rachel Nackman accompanies the exhibition.
