The group exhibition “Machines à penser” at Fondazione Prada in Venice (Italy) explores the correlation between conditions of exile, escape and retreat and physical or mental places which favor reflection, thought and intellectual production. Curated by Dieter Roelstraete, “Machines à penser” focuses on three major philosophers of the 20th century: Theodor W. Adorno (1903-1969), Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) and Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951). The exhibition runs until November 25, 2018. This video provides you with an exhibition walkthrough on the occasion of the press preview on May 23, 2018.
The exhibition creates an immersive journey that deepens our understanding of these three philosophers and the relationship between philosophy, art and architecture. It features artworks by Leonor Antunes, Jan Bontjes van Beek, Paolo Chiasera, Alec Finlay, Robert Gillanders, Anselm Kiefer, Alexander Kluge, Patrick Lakey, Goshka Macuga, Mark Manders, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Digne Meller-Marcovicz, Jeremy Millar, Guy Moreton, Sophie Nys, Giulio Paolini, Susan Philipsz, Gerhard Richter, Mark Riley, Joseph Semah, Ewan Telford and the collective “Wittgenstein on Vacation” (Sebastian Makonnen Kjølaas, Marianne Bredesen and Siri Hjorth).
