Guided tour by Teresa Grandas, coordinator of the exibition

The aim of this exhibition is to achieve an account of the state of artistic research and to discuss selected contributions to the subject matter that appear central after two to three decades of an ever intensely blazing conflict about the legacy of modernity and modernism as regards form and content, and the (to some extent) solid criticism of this category and the contents that are linked to it. It is much more about a fundamental attack that challenges the conditions and constraints of modernity and modernism and will reveal new readings. At the exhibition works will be on display by artists such as Armando Andrade Tudela, Anna Artaker, Alice Creischer / Andreas Siekmann, Domènec, Katja Eydel, Ângela Ferreira, Andrea Fraser, Isa Genzken, Dan Graham and Robin Hurst, Tom Holert / Claudia Honecker, Marine Hugonnier, IRWIN, Runa Islam, Klub Zwei (Simone Bader / Jo Schmeiser), John Knight, Labor k3000 (Peter Spillmann / Michael Vögeli / Marion von Osten), Louise Lawler, David Maljkovic, Dorit Margreiter, Gordon Matta-Clark, Gustav Metzger, Christian Philipp Müller, Henrik Olesen, Paulina Olowsa, Falke Pisano, Mathias Poledna, Florian Pumhösl, Martha Rosler, Stephen Willats and Christopher Williams.
