Garden of Earthly Delights

Running from 26 July to 1 December 2019, the Gropius Bau’s exhibition Garden of Earthly Delights will see over 15 international artists using the space of the garden as a metaphor for the state of the world, in an exploration of the complexities of our chaotic and increasingly precarious present. Alongside the classical reading of the garden as a secluded and circumscribed place of yearning full of meditative, spiritual, and philosophical possibilities, it is viewed in the exhibition as a place of duality and contradiction: a threshold between reality and fantasy, utopia and dystopia, harmony and chaos, eros and perversion, naturalness and artificiality, between being shut out and being included.These myriad perspectives are also reflected in the selection of media, encompassing installation, performance, film and sound, paintings, photography, drawing, and sculpture.
