Walter SwennenThe Way We Are 4.0
Weserburg Museum für moderne Kunst, Bremen, Germany
The Way We Are 4.0 brings together some one hundred works from more than eighty artists and artist groups from different eras and contexts. Five thematic areas spread across 2,500 m² convey insights into international art from the 1960s to the present day: Worlds of the Body, Views of Germany, Aesthetic Objection, Displaced Everyday Life, and Minimalistic Tendencies. These thematic classifications are complemented by a series of artist spaces and an extraordinary art bar consisting of a former film set. This gives rise to unexpected readings of the art of our current era with respect to all the media.
The works on display come from a large number of private collections, from the museum’s own inventory, and from loans by artists.
The Way We Are 4.0 is being curated by Ingo Clauß and Janneke de Vries.
