Welcome! We are the curators of the upcoming exhibition series Rethinking MATTER, opening soon in Godsbanen, the main cultural production center in Aarhus, Denmark. We are very proud and excited to present three exhibitions that explore the material turn in contemporary art and visual culture The Tactile, Digital Materiality, and Biotic Synthetics.

During our time working together at Aarhus Center for Visual Art, we spotted a tendency for artists to play with the boundaries of materiality, and have become fascinated by the ways in which artists play with art materials - what is used, and how.

This blog will complement the exhibition series as a forum for thought and discussion, as a space in which to unpack the ideas underlying the three shows and motivating our collaborative curatorial practice.

Velkommen! Vi er kuratorerne bag den kommende udstillingsrække Rethinking MATTER på Godsbanen i Aarhus. Vi er stolte af og glæder os til at præsentere tre udstillinger der undersøger samtidskunstens forhold til materialer og brugen af dem, gennem udstillingerne The TactileDigital Materiality, and Biotic Synthetics.

I den tid vi har arbejdet sammen på Aarhus Billedkunstcenter synes vi at have spottet en tendens i samtidskunsten, hvor kunstnerne tester og udforsker materialets grænser. Denne tendens har fascineret os og dannet grobund for denne udstillingsrække, der inddrager kunstnere som "leger" med kunstens materialer og brugen af dem.

Denne blog vil supplere formidlingen af udstillingsrækken og åbne op for de tematikker der bringes i spil gennem de forskellige udstillinger. Her kan man løbende finde blogindlæg fra os og kunstnerne samt informationer om up-coming events.
