Pasajes. Viajes por el híper-espacio (Passages: Travels in Hyperspace) is a selection of works drawn from the collection of Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-B A21). Consisting primarily of large-scale installation work, the exhibition is designed so as to foster a contemplative stroll, making the body central to the visitor's experience of art and offering a journey into a perceptual dimension that activates the physical, the sensory and the cerebral.
The heightened visual and sensorial stimulations described by the notion of "hyperspace" is a metaphor for the abrogation of "the capacity of the individual human body to locate itself, to organize its immediate surroundings perceptually, and cognitively to map its position in a mappable external world." (Jameson)
