Manit Sriwanichpoom at the KAI 10 | Arthena Foundation, Düsseldorf and KINDL – Center for Contemporary Art, Berlin
17 Jun 2017
Manit Sriwanichpoom will be showing in Contemporary Ruins for a cooperation of KAI 10 | Arthena Foundation, Düsseldorf and KINDL – Center for Contemporary Art, Berlin.
The exhibition Contemporary Ruins examines the always-fascinating aesthetic potential of ruins, on the one hand, as well as their political and economic causes and implications, on the other. The process traces a historical development, moving from the traditional idealization of ruins as a source of contemplative meditation on a distant past to an interpretation of ruins more in step with present times, which questions their creation and current significance in detail.
