Future Bodies from a Recent Past — Sculpture, Technology, and the Body since the 1950s
A hitherto little-noticed phenomenon in art and sculpture—namely, the mutual interpenetration of bodies and technology—is brought to life in Future Bodies from a Recent Past—Sculpture, Technology, and the Body since the 1950s.
Featuring works by around 60 artists—primarily from Europe, the United States, and Japan—the exhibition focuses on the major technological changes that have occurred since World War II and examines how these have influenced the way we perceive bodies. The show is a journey through materials, forms, and modes of expression in sculpture, a medium that has changed more in the last 70 years than probably ever before in its long history. Curated by Patrizia Dander with Franziska Linhardt.
Coming Together in Parts: Hiijack the Future
Opening with Various Others, the second chapter of the film program "Coming Together in Parts" invites to explore alternative perspectives of the future. Located in the media room on the lower level of Museum Brandhorst, “Hijack the Future” presents video works by artists Sophia Al-Maria, Masha Godovannaya and Yong Xiang Li. Their cinematic narratives thwart not only our notions of time, but also traditional stories and myths. They open up alternative and more-than-human perspectives on our togetherness and antagonism on this planet—between companionship, dependency and exploitation. Curated by Franziska Linhardt.
