Abstract:

The Art of Deceleration distills a theme that touches a nerve with society. Since the 19th century, the tempo of life has continuously increased up to "rushing stand still" (Paul Virilio). The longing for relaxation and contemplation grows at the same time. The exhibition project in the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg focuses on the contrapuntal phenomenon of motion and rest in art from the Romantic to classic modernism and the present day. From the beginning, the fascination for unleashed motion was accompanied by the search for an aesthetic of slowness. The Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg examines this dialectic in a comprehensive exhibition featuring circa 150 works by 80 artists. Artists of the exhibition: Josef Albers - Giacomo Balla - Joseph Beuys - Alexander Calder - Hussein Chalayan - Francesco Clemente - Giorgio de Chirico - Robert Delaunay - Marcel Duchamp - Caspar David Friedrich - Franz Gertsch - Douglas Gordon - Andreas Gursky - Jeppe Hein - Anselm Kiefer - Frantisek Kupka - El Lissitzky - Aristide Maillol - Kasimir Malewitsch - Christian Marclay - Kris Martin - Aernout Mik - Lazlo Moholy-Nagy - Giorgio Morandi - Bruce Nauman - Roman Opalka - Julian Opie - George Osodi - Nam June Paik - Julius Popp - Odilon Redon - Gerhard Richter - Auguste Rodin - Mark Rothko - Thomas Ruff - Jonathan Schipper - Jean Tinguely - William Turner - James Turrell - Cy Twombly - Lee Ufan - Fabienne Verdier - Bill Viola - Andy Warhol - Ai Weiwei - Zhou Xiaohu - and others.
