After university or work, we invite you to a stimulating hour at Museum Brandhorst. On each occasion, we invite people from different social backgrounds to come and look at a work of art from a very personal and more or less unusual perspective. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the focus is on a shared exchange of views in front of the works, which can be continued in the Café im Zebra with music and drinks, as desired.
“As a collective, we are interested in the effects of new technologies on our (self) perception, on culture and society. The exhibition shows the developments of recent decades to which artists have reacted. We want to stimulate discussion on the fascination of technical and media-related interfaces with the body. That’s why we have chosen Walter Pichler’s ‘TV-Helm (Tragbares Wohnzimmer)’ from 1967.” (Gnothi Seauton)
Today’s guest is the artists’ collective Gnothi Seauton. The name cites an inscription from the Temple of Apollo in ancient Delphi; this went down in the history of philosophy as the guiding principle “Know thyself.” What role do media play in the process of cognition? In light of the overwhelming importance that multimedia applications have today for the perception of both the environment and our own personalities, we can expect an exciting dialog about the work of Walter Pichler, which seems to anticipate VR glasses.
