From inside to outside

In a globalized world with new methods of communication, social and political processes today are shifting into the most intimate of human spheres. Increasingly, the mind is becoming a political arena. Yet, as universal as this phenomenon may seem, internal landscapes, mental images, and reactions to the external world are culturally influenced. The show at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden and its companion catalogue pose the question of how to visualize these various experiences through art. It features works by international contemporary artists who deal with inward perception and its transformation into something external. These works are contrasted with pieces from Prinzhorn Collection, the museum for art by people who have had exceptional psychological experiences.

With works by Kader Attia, Heidi Bucher, Omer Fast, Dan Finsel, Samara Golden, Liz Magic Laser, Jim Shaw, Wang Tuo, Jorinde Voigt, and Chen Zhe

Exhibition: 16.3.–16.6.2019, Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden
