With an introduction by Kjersti Andvig and Lars Laumann in English.

In conjunction with the group exhibition Report on Probability Kunsthalle Basel presents the most recent film by Lars Laumann (b. 1975, Norway). Shut up Child, This Ain’t Bingo (2009) tells the true story of the relationship between Norwegian artist Kjersti Andvig and her collaborative partner Carlton Turner, a Texan death row inmate. Combining his own photographic and video documentation with found material, Laumann focuses on the 3-month period from the end of the couple’s artistic work together until Turner’s execution and how during this time their relationship shifted from professional to romantic.
