How has our view of the human body changed in the post-industrial age? Current answers by thirteen contemporary international artists.
Social Creatures-How Body Becomes Art presents obsessive kissers and Iranian young-girls' dreams; it raises questions about altered ideas of human intimacy, about patterns of order in social structures, and about the meaning of the human being as a commodity. The human image, the view of self that shapes one's frame of action, appears to be in a constant state of flux. The destabilization of cultural, ethnic, and socio-political identities against the background of expanding global orientation is as much a part of this process as the dwindling significance of human labor. Social Creatures-How Body Becomes Art presents a collection of thirteen current artistic positions, each of which pursues a different approach to the representation of the human body in photography and video art. Artists featured: Francis Alÿs, Max Baumann, Pierre Bismuth, Jeff Burton, Ghazel, Pierre Huyghe, Ben Judd, Boris Mikhailov, Carlos Nader, Stephen Shore, Santiago Sierra, Gillian Wearing, Erwin Wurm Exhibition schedule: Sprengel Museum Hannover, February 29-June 13, 2004
