“Art unframes and ruptures the meaning of what we usually see or hear, allowing it to speak in an outside voice.” – Philippe Parreno

Philippe Parreno has revolutionized the experience of exhibitions. He transforms galleries in choreographed spaces that follow a script, where all artworks are interconnected and series of unexpected and interdependent events unfold. In his exhibitions, the visit becomes a journey that alters the perception of space, of time and of boundaries. Through his multidisciplinary practice, Parreno has created artworks that question the demarcation between reality and fiction, triggering new and surprising sensorial experiences.

For Haus der Kunst Parreno has conceived a new site specific intervention scattered across Mittelhalle and Ostgalerie, mainly oriented towards the ceiling, in which voice(s) play a fundamental role in bringing the building alive. The edifice becomes a resonating organism of light and sounds, featuring installations, films, new works, collaborations with peer artists, a cooperation with news anchor woman Susanne Daubner (Tagesschau) and a gallery entirely conceived for children.

Curated by Andrea Lissoni with Hanns Lennart Wiesner and Lydia Antoniou.
