Paintings made by drones, 3D printed vases, a chandelier made of security camera's and a mysterious, unmanned aircraft.
From April 22nd there will be a solo exhibition by American artist Addie Wagenknecht at MU. Wagenknecht critically examines the concept of borders and the laws that govern them. Zooming in on digital networks and developments that create a range of new liminal situations, she explores the tension between technology and expression.
Computers and new technologies may save us a lot of work – but to what end? Do they free us from arduous tasks to be more creative or do they force us to become ever more productive? What if machines make us obsolete? We eagerly plug into the networks that surround us, hardly aware of the profound changes taking place behind the screens, where the flow of data takes on a dynamic of its own.
The exhibition therefore is perfect to associate with nowadays subjects like digital privacy, identity and hacking. Because her work is accessible and light it creates the perfect space for an interesting discussion.
During the exhibition we offer a interactive tour. During the interactive tour we provide an accessible introduction and discuss the subjects . MU encourages a free set-up in which pupils and students feel the freedom to say what they feel, see and experience, as long as they can explain why. We try to link the works to certain social and educational issues matching the group.
