The Inner Life of Things

Frankfurter Kunstverein, 05.02.2010 – 25.04.2010
The exhibition takes the concept of mimesis, understood as an imitative representation of reality, and its role in contemporary artistic productions as a point of departure. The works brought together in the exhibition question in exemplary fashion the character of the “real world” as well as the observer’s relationship to it. In addition to the seven artistic positions taken, some exhibits from the Sammlung des Museum der Dinge / Werkbundarchiv (Berlin) will be on display.
