Menschenbild II

17. November 2007 – 20. Januar 2008

Wolf Singers Frage nach dem „neuen Menschbild“ entfaltet Hölderlins „Hyperion“ und Nietzsches „Jenseits von Gut und Böse“ für eine neue Zeit. Der biologischen Evolution und den natürlichen Grenzen der Möglichkeiten von „Menschsein“ gegenüber steht die Sehnsucht nach dem Vernunft begabten Wesen und seiner kulturell, sozialen Entwicklung.

An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar

September 29, 2007 – January 20, 2008

»I am always immensely grateful to people who do impossible things on my behalf and bring back the picture. It means I don’t have to do it, but at least I know what it looks like. So one’s first feeling on looking at many of these extraordinary images is gratitude (followed quickly by a momentary pang of envy: the sedentary writer’s salute to the woman of action).« 
Salman Rushdie über Taryn Simon
