Mika Rottenberg mirrors and nails the global situation and human condition of our day and age. She mixes film, installation and sculpture, weaving truth with fiction to create spellbinding works that are both absurd, surrealistic, critical, loving – and fun.
Mika Rottenberg was born 1976 in Argentina, grew up in Israel and is now based in New York. She stands as one of the great names of contemporary art with a body of work that can be seen as an allegory of the global situation – our inter-connections, crises, our unexpected and sometimes cosmic encounters.
Over the past 15 years she has created a chorus of ideas and voices – critical as well as absurd and humorous. This exhibition will also present a brand new category of works – kinetic sculptures that call for the active participation of the viewer. Scenery, films and visitors will form new alliances and showcasing art at a time when globalization, science fiction and absurd comedy play key roles.
After the guided tour, we go to the restaurant for the nice buffet. Afterwards you can go around on your own hand.
