EXHIBITION SCHEDULE

Berlin
Martin Gropius Bau, 04/28/10-08/09/10

My fundamental concept is to create a critical exchange between the Martin-Gropius-Bau as an institution, my artworks and the city of Berlin

  

WALTHER KöNIG, KöLN

Olafur Eliasson: Inner City Out

Text by Daniel Birnbaum.

One of the most important artists of his generation, Olafur Eliasson (born 1967) creates immersive environments and spectacular public installations that probe the cognitive aspects of vision and transform the act of looking into a social experience. Merging art and science, Eliasson engages the observer as participant, challenging the passive viewing experience by utilizing such elements as temperature, smell, moisture and light to trigger physical sensations. Olafur Eliasson: Inner City Out documents the artist's first project in Berlin, where he has lived and worked for many years. Designed for the Martin-Gropius-Bau, and curated by Daniel Birnbaum, it examines the relationship between the museum and the city, bridging the two through ephemeral installations placed in various locations throughout the city as well as within the museum itself.

FROM THE BOOK
"I see the proximity of the Martin-Gropius-Bau to my studio as a great asset, as the interaction between the two may help emphasise the idea of the exhibition as a laboratory, a site of production, or a content machine, that is to say, an event that produces meaning...I also want to introduce an element of unpredictability into the institution."

Olafur Eliasson, excerpted from his text to Inner City Out.
