Besucherinnen vor großer Skulptur

Future Bodies from a Recent Past (max. 15 People, 60 min.)

The exhibition brings to life a hitherto little-noticed phenomenon in art, and more particularly in sculpture: the reciprocal interpenetration of body and technology. With more than 100 works and several large-scale installations by about 60 artists—primarily from Europe, the United States, and Japan—the exhibition focuses on the major technological changes since World War II and their influence on our ideas of the body.

 

This tour can be booked until the end of the exhibition on January 15, 2023.

Comicfigur 'Xen'

Kids and families: Future Buddy (60. mins, max. 15 people)

Our exhibition mascot Cyborg Xen will take you by the hand and accompany you through the sculpture exhibition “Future Bodies.” Together we will think about how the bodies affect us: lively or strange, funny or disturbing? What might their functions be? Why were they built and how do we feel around them? The children’s activity booklet for the exhibition offers many ideas for drawing, creating, and thinking! Maybe you'd like to help Xen create a tech buddy of his own?

 

This offer is for families, children and teenagers up to 18 years old. This tour can be booked until the end of the exhibition on January 15, 2023.

Body Phantasms—Cyborgs, Zombies, Clones (90 mins / max. 15 people)

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 to join us for a guided tour of the special exhibition “Future Bodies from a Recent Past—Sculpture, Technology, and the Body since the 1950s.” This tour can be booked until the end of the exhibition on January 15, 2023.

It matters—Sculpture and Materiality (90 mins / max. 15 people)

The spectrum of materials used in sculpture has expanded enormously since the 1950s. Artists quickly adopted new products and the materials. In the exhibition, for example, we encounter sculptures made of pantyhose, various plastics, but also candy. Where do these materials come from? What do they mean? And: Will sculpture dematerialize in the digital age? The guided tour explores the link between art and technology and sheds light on their production contexts.

Technological Frenzy (90 mins / max. 15 people)

No one can escape the rapid pace of mechanization and digitalization. Technology determines our lives; many things seem to have become more comfortable, easier and more networked. Machines take over unpopular jobs. But who will make the decisions in the future in the interaction between humans, machines and AI? What impact will mechanization have on us?

Based on the artworks in the exhibition, the critical guided tour explores our ambivalent relationship with “technical progress.”
