Luftkunst

04.02.2011 – 01.05.2011

People have always asked how might gravity be overcome; to be able to rise into the air is the most ancient dream of mankind. Only gods and angles could do it!

But with the technical conquest of the air their mythical importance did not disappear – to the present day, the air space and its manifestations still fascinate. How do you describe air; how do you depict it in artistic form? Art attempts the impossible, uses air as a negative form in sculptures, captures it in glass envelopes and tubes, controls pneumatic systems, levitates or simulates deprivation and pollution.

The sweep of our exhibition spans from the techno-scientific through the artistic formal to the mythical and philosophical of this seeming nothingness from which we live: our (life-giving) air.
