THE ORDER OF THINGS
This falls exhibition is based on the online image archive of the Canadian artist Roy Arden.
The image database is the central esthetic motive of the show, but it is also an artistic method and cultural strategy - archive, atlas, encyclopedia and inventory and so many ways to create order in the neverending flood of images that characterize our visual culture.
Participants: Roy Arden, Luis Jacob, Cameron Jamie, Arthur Lipsett, Tine Melzer, Marc Nagtzaam, Cady Noland, Peter Piller, Sigmar Polke, Richard Prince, Robert Rauschenberg, ROMA Publications [Mark Manders & Roger Willems], , Thomas Ruff, Joachim Schmid, Steven Shearer, Nancy Spero, Batia Suter, Els Vanden Meersch, Andy Warhol en Christopher Williams., Marjolijn Dijkman, Hans Eijkelboom, , Sanja Ivekovic,
curated by Dieter Roelstraete
