Love Sign is an exhibition based on a 200GB digital database of Prince fan ephemera, books, music, bootlegs, videos, and imagery. The files were compiled by Prince fans in and around Hamburg over years and passed on to friends and strangers at bars and clubs via a USB stick, engraved with the Love Symbol. Taking the material and the open medium of the database as a starting point, the exhibition brings together artworks that reflect on Prince’s identity, politics as well as visual and musical aesthetic. All material produced in the course of the exhibition will be added to the digital database afterward, which will then be passed on.
