People who have saved this event:



In describing humanity’s attempt to negotiate the shift from one technological regime to another, Walter Benjamin employed the metaphor of a child learning to grasp by stretching out its hand for the moon as it would for a ball. Taking this image as a starting point, the exhibition focuses on artworks in which moments of misrecognition or mistranslation between language and vision can give rise to new creative and transformative energies.
