The artist book Private Viewing was conceived as an extension to Sofia Duchovny’s solo exhibition at Kunstverein Göttingen in 2019. With the help of melodramatic references and a sense of humor, Duchovny is blurring the lines between privacy, exposure, and authenticity working towards an „acted reality“. This is also conveyed in the publication, as it is not merely a reproduction of the exhibition but rather begins where the former has ended, opening another chapter of the artist’s practice.
