Machines à penser
Fondazione Prada, Venice, Italy
26 May 2018 – 25 November 2018
Fondazione Prada presents the exhibition “Machines à penser”, curated by Dieter Roelstraete, exploring the correlation between conditions of exile, escape and retreat and physical or mental places which favour reflection, thought and intellectual production.
“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).
Gerhard Richter's overpainted photographs of the Engadin mountainscapes and the sculpture Kugel III are part of the exhibition.
