Future Bodies from a Recent Past brings to life in particular a hitherto little-noticed phenomenon in art and sculpture: the reciprocal interpenetration of bodies and technology. With 120 works by 59 artists — primarily from Europe, the United States and Japan — the exhibition is dedicated to the major technological changes since the postwar period and examines their influence on our notions of bodies. A multi-perspective history of contemporary sculpture is outlined with contributions on topics such as the influence of changing production technologies, materialities, and concepts of the body, but also interdisciplinary considerations of body-technology relations.
