Philine Cremer has invited the curator Tina Sauerländer to curate LAYERED LANDSCAPES. With artists from Asia, Australia, Europe and the USA the exhibition explores the phenomenon of layers in the digital age in contemporary landscape depictions as a reflection of today’s living conditions.
Windows to different worlds open up on a screen’s surface. Versions of reality overlap. Behind each visible layer another version and another excerpt of reality comes into existence. There are neither pure facts nor absolute truth. The world consists of subjective perceptions and interpretations. In today’s society, these ideas are highly relevant as well as explosive: on the one hand, they reflect an essential structure of life in the digital age, on the other hand—by casting many possible views on one and the same thing—they symbolize openness and tolerance as basic principles of peaceful coexistence in a society.
