This exhibition focuses on the museum’s collection and field of research. On the fusion between word, image and sound art. On the changes the technological development and the new media have had on the concept of work through the latest decades. And – with the most recent works on show – which new frontiers between media and art are being explored nowadays.
The historical assumptions, which go back to the 20th century’s isms and anti-isms – such as dadaism, Fluxus, conceptual art, sound poetry and minimalism, are represented both as works and as sound/image/word documentations of artists like Raoul Hausmann, Gertrude Stein, Marcel Duchamp, John Cage, Yoko Ono, Jackson Mac Low, Joe Jones, Nam June Paik, Akio Suzuki and Geoffrey Hendricks. A series later works by Eric Andersen, Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd, Laurie Anderson, Berty Skuber, Vagn Steen, Pierre-André Arcand, William Anastasi, Dove Bradshaw, Christian Marclay and Grete Brodersen reveal philosophical, playing, unpretentious, self ironic and deeply original ways of coming into view in the world.
Theworks by two invited artists Kassandra Wellendorf and Solvej Dufour Andersen represent some of the most recent developments within film and sound installation in Denmark.
