Painting 2.0: Expression in the Information Age
MUNICH, GERMANY  •  Museum Brandhorst  •  14 November 2015 - 30 April 2016
 
 

Featuring over 230 works by 107 artists, Painting 2.0: Expression in the Information Age claims to be the first exhibition to tell the story of painting’s adaptation, absorption and transformation of information technologies in Western Europe and the United States since the 1960s. Its historical starting point in Pop Art and Nouveau Réalisme’s programmatic appropriation and re-contextualization of commercial imagery precedes the advent of digitalization and the Internet by some thirty years. Painting’s capacity to absorb and transform other media became explicit at the same moment as its legitimacy was fundamentally challenged by cultural forms of mediation which Guy Debord theorizes in his influential critique as The Society of the Spectacle (1967).

Artists include:

Welcome to the Anthropocene
MUNICH, GERMANY  •  Deutsches Museum  •  5 December 2014 - 30 September 2016
 

Today, the human imprint is so deep and pervasive that scientists, policymakers, and society are considering whether human-caused changes are affecting the geological record over the long term – whether we are, in fact, living in a new geological era.

This exhibition, covering 1,400 square metres, is the first major exhibition in the world to look at an issue that will be decisive for the future: the Anthropocene. Through selected topics such as urbanisation, mobility, nature, evolution, food, and human-machine interaction, the exhibition explores the past, present, and future of humanity. Historical artefacts trace the technology that put us on the path to the Anthropocene, while current research presents the challenges we are facing today, as well as possible solutions. Artistic interpretations provide visions for the future and ask us to look at the world in new ways.

The exhibition catalogue is available in German and English.

This special exhibition is a joint project of the Deutsches Museum and the Rachel Carson Center.
