Julio Le Parc: Lumière
The exhibition focuses on one of the most important aspects of Julio Le Parc’s work: his preoccupation with changing light. Dating mainly from the 1960s, the works in this exhibition embrace reflecting materials and built-in motors to create spectacular and entrancing light installations. With an emphasis on the role of the spectator, Le Parc's art simultaneously illuminates the role of the artist as well as that of the institution. Julio Le Parc (b. 1928, Argentina) was one of the founders of the influential Groupe Recherche d'Art Visuel (GRAV) in Paris in the 1960s.

The world was flat, now it's round, and it will be a hologram
The title traces a journey, a story that is apparently linear, although its chronology is only an appearance: man’s connection to dimensions of time, our consciousness of space, and our travel into a multidimensional universe where the distinction between the shaman’s world and our own cybersphere are all no longer self-evident. The world was flat presents works by Julieta Aranda, Erick Beltrán, François Bucher, Rometti Costales, Harun Farocki, Jeppe Hein, Herman von Helmholz, Klara Hobza, Bernd Kröplin, Lina Maria López, Douwe Mulder, John Mario Ortiz, Julien Prévieux, Benoit Pype, Manuela Ribadeneira, Tomás Saraceno and Daniel Steegmann. Curated by Lina Maria López and Francois Bucher.

Nisrine Boukhari: Wanderism is a State of Mind
Nisrine Boukhari's art is inspired by psychogeography: theories about how geographical environments affect people's emotions and behaviour. In recent years she has been working with ideas of displacement and coined the term "wanderism." Behind the ambiguous title of the exhibition lies the fact that the artist left her homeland Syria, is constantly on the move, and sees her own mind as her nation.
