This group show reflects upon the concept of ruins and remnants as elements that evidence political, ecological, social and human concerns with regard to history. Ruins tell a story, but they also provide us with doubts concerning both the past and the future. Through the works of Lara Almarcegui, Rossella Biscotti, Teresa Margolles, Théo Mercier and Uriel Orlow, the exhibition presents to the visitors the concept of contemporary ruin as a vessel of different emotions and narratives.
Fragments as a Tool – Memory and Archeology in Contemporary art
This event, curated by Lorenzo Bruni, is a cross-reading about one of the latest trends in contemporary art: the use of archives and the archaeological method adopted by artists to reflect not on the identity of a society of the past, but on our present.
Films by artists Maria Thereza Alves, Rossella Biscotti, Uriel Orlow, and Ulla Von Brandenburg will be screened in order to create a moment of encounter, informal debate, and reflection upon this theme.
Exhibition curated by Anke Hoffmann and Yvonne Volkart with work by Zbynek Baladrán, Rossella Biscotti, Daniela Comani, Christoph Draeger, Karen Geyer, Hofmann/Lindholm,
Knowbotic Research, Uriel Orlow , Suzanne Treister, Sarah Vanagt, Miriam Vysaczki.
