BODIES AND INHABITANTS

BODIES AND INHABITANTSMichal Rutz | “Self Portrait” | oil on paper | 2018

BODIES AND INHABITANTS
Between desire and reality, individual and collective body
September 6 – 30, 2018 | Sigmun Freud Museum, Curated by Larissa Kopp

The exhibition BODIES AND INHABITANTS deals with the question: who lives inside my body? What looks at me in the mirror, and how do I react to that? The artists visually explore the perception of the body and its forms of representation, the relation between the inside and the outside and the power of different sociocultural influences. They question handed down depictions of physical sensitivities, as well as current Ideals and their omnipresence. Doing that, they break with clichès and heteronormative views.

Everything is Connected: Art and Conspiracy

Exhibition Dates: September 18, 2018–January 6, 2019
Exhibition Location: The Met Breuer, Floor 4

For the last 50 years, artists have explored the hidden operations of power and the symbiotic suspicion between the government and its citizens.

Covering the period from 1969 to 2016 and featuring 70 works by 30 artists working in a range of media—from painting and sculpture to photography, video, and installation art – Everything Is Connected will present an alternate history of postwar and contemporary art that is also an archaeology of our troubled times.
The exhibition is made possible by Andrea Krantz and Harvey Sawikin.
Additional support is provided by James and Vivian Zelter.
