We live in an age in which the boundaries between humans, machines and other living organisms are blurring, resulting in unexpected redefinitions of and updates to our idea of the physical. Artists present us with cyborgs and digital doppelgangers that question physical and social norms. The tour focuses on these sculptural parallel bodies and explores different concepts of the body.
Following different themes, we invite you every Thursday and Saturday to join us for a one-hour tour of the special exhibition “Future Bodies from a Recent Past—Sculpture, Technology, and the Body since the 1950s.” The tour is included in the price of admission.
The art education program accompanying the special exhibition "Future Bodies from a Recent Past" was developed as part of “dive in. Programme for Digital Interactions” of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation) with funding by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) through the NEUSTART KULTUR programme.
The program was also generously supported by PIN. Freunde der Pinakothek der Moderne e.V.
