Opening of the exhibition: “How to Make a Paradise – Seducement and dependence in generated worlds”

26.03.2020, 19:00

We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition on Thursday, March 26 at 7 pm.

Speaking at the opening:

Prof. Franziska Nori (Director Frankfurter Kunstverein)
Mattis Kuhn (Curator)

Paradise stirs fulfillment and longing: for far away and beauty, for effortless existence. Digital gadgets are available anytime, anywhere. They promise expansion of our comfort zone, and abduct us from the here and now. They transport us into worlds whose surface appearance is adaptable to our wishes.

Curated by Mattis Kuhn with the support of Franziska Nori, the exhibition at Frankfurter Kunstverein includes a wide range of artistic projects that deal with the human desire for digital escapism, as well as the urge to expand our abilities through technology in pursuit of self-optimization. Multimedia installations, digital films and VR experiences are on view. Under the title “How to Make a Paradise” artists present visions of earthly paradise, reflect on current developments, and prompt visitors to create their own imagined future worlds.

We are looking forward to seeing you!
