Entangle / Physics and the Artistic Imagination

Goshka Macuga is part of the group exhibition  "Entangle / Physics and the Artistic Imagination" at the Bildmuseet in Umeå. The exhibition shows different contemporary positions of artists and designers, who are dealing with science. Macuga’s  installation “International Institute of Intellectual Co-operation” 2015/2016,  refers to the same named institute, which was found in 1920's. The Idea was to facilitate the international exchange of intellectuals. Macuga expanded this model by bringing together portraits of intellecutals who hypothetically discuss problematic matters of our time.

Karin Kneffel | Museum Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden

Sensual surfaces seduce the eye, inviting the viewer to simply enjoy. Karin Kneffel paints canvasses that exert a magical attraction. Her realist painting draws the viewer into sophisticated visual worlds in which her skillful arrangement of formal ornaments and the interplay of colors blend into an optical fireworks display. However, the works retain a secretive aloofness, as if the perfect, inviting, yet sealed-off surface is deliberately preventing a closer look.

Jeff Wall | APPEARANCE | MUDAM Luxemburg

A major figure in contemporary art, Jeff Wall has deeply transformed the way we think about photography. By aligning it with a broader pictorial tradition and appraising it in its relations to other arts – painting first, but also cinema and literature – he has redefined its essence and extended the field of its possibilities. © Jeff Wall

Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall and others | Body Scan ERES-Stiftung

The academic field dealing with the inner structure of the body is directly at the interface of art and science. The precise documentation of the body for teaching purposes was formerly mostly the result of close collaboration between visual artists and anatomists. While macroscopic anatomy deals with things that are visible to the naked eye, today’s focus is on cell biology and, therefore, on the molecular level. (ERES-Stiftung) © Thomas Struth
