HERE AND NOW at Museum LudwigTranscorporealities
9/21/2019 – 1/19/2020
The exhibition Transcorporealities reflects on the museum as a permeable body in which various biological, social, technological, political, and economic systems flow into each other. Like all human and nonhuman entities, it engages in perpetual metabolic processes with its environment. Against this backdrop, the transitional area of the foyer turns into an exhibition and performance space. Here as well as in the collection, the artists raise questions about embodiment, visibility, and accessibility: What is inscribed in and attributed to the body? Who is looking at whom? Museums are social places of education that create matter and meaning. But what are the possibilities and limits of corporeal representation?
Participating artists: Jesse Darling, Flaka Haliti, Trajal Harrell, Paul Maheke, Nick Mauss, Park McArthur, Oscar Murillo, Sondra Perry
