Art&Idea is pleased to announce the opening of the group exhibition ‘Goethe Dialogues’ on the occasion of the reopening of the Goethe Institute in Barcelona on the 31st of October 2014. The international group exhibition Goethe Dialogues, curated by Robert Punkenhofer and organized on the occasion of the reopening of the headquarters of the Goethe-Institut Barcelona, is devoted to a critical analysis of contemporary art and Goethe in the broadest sense. The aim is to reflect through the works of contemporary artists references to Goethe, to him, this ‘universal genius’ with its multiple interests, but also his influence on the evolution of language and communication. Although the exhibition focuses on art from Germany, there is also a bridge to international art, especially from Spain.
Works by the following artist are being presented: Art&Language, Boris van Berkum, Iñaki Bonillas, Fernando Bryce, Hanne Darboven, Anna Dot, Harun Farocki, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Juan Fontcuberta, Alicia Framis, Rainer Ganahl, Jenny Holzer, Iwajla Klinke, Joseph Kosuth, Matias Krahn, Jochen Lempert, Jan Mech, Fabio de Minicis, Antoni Muntadas, Bruce Nauman, Lucy + Jorge Orta, Tony Oursler, Peter Piller, Proxi, Elisabeth von Samsonow and Oriol Vilanova. The exhibition is curated by Robert Punkenhofer.
