Cwiczenia z wyobrazni. Atlas. Jak uniesc swiat na wlasnych barkach Georgesa Didi-Hubermana w Museo Reina Sofia w Madrycie
EXERCISES IN IMAGINATION. ”ATLAS. HOW TO CARRY THE WORLD ON ONE’S BACK?” BY GEORGES DIDI-HUBERMAN AT THE MUSEO REINA SOFIA IN MADRID
Languages of publication
Inspired by the Mnemosyne-Atlas method, the exhibition is an experiment composed of works belonging to different orders (paintings, photographs, documentation sketches and notes) arranged upon the basis of the principle of “affiliation by choice” (known from Warburg and Goethe). The perilous show – fragmentary, selective, concentrated on the detail and not belonging to any synthesis - became a sui generis search for that which may be described as a ”form of visual knowledge”. Formally bold, it poses a challenge both for the practice of holding exhibitions and the routine of art institutions, while for the recipients it is a specific “exercise in imagination”.
