Introduction To A Distant World
26. Juni – 29. August 2020
In the descriptive representation of the multitude of human attainments, the unity principle can be conceived most likely under the keyword ‘distance’. An answer to the question ‘how is a human being possible’, could be: by distance. (Hans Blumenberg)
The ability to take distance has become a virtue in a time of constant immediacy. This exact ability or freedom of distance was all of sudden severely restricted and became a fundamental behavior of human existence.
The notion of distance applies to this exhibition in an interdisciplinary way, detached from its usual contexts. It constitutes a constant reference of all exhibited works.
