OUR DIGITAL PROGRAMME
What should the museum of the future look like? Supported by the Federal Cultural Foundation’s Digital Fund, the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf and the Museum Ulm are launching a movement for more democracy in the art world: nextmuseum.io is a digital platform where curators, artists, institutions, visitors and all those interested can now play an active role in conceiving exhibitions and developing experimental approaches.
#cute. Islands of Bliss?
With more than five hundred million posts on Instagram alone, #cute
is one of the most popular hashtags ever. Cute can mean dainty, sweet,
or twee, and we come across it in all aspects of life. Animal babies,
unicorns, rabbit ears—cuteness is closely related to consumer culture
and has not only taken social media by storm, but also product design,
advertising, robotics, and art.
Made in Düsseldorf #3:
Alex Grein / Johanna Reich
Made in Düsseldorf is an exhibition series by the NRW-Forum in cooperation with the Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf. It is dedicated to contemporary artists who are connected with Düsseldorf and the Rhineland through their studies, place of residence, or the content of their artistic work.
THE KEBAB HELIX
AND OTHER FAST FOOD FANTASIES
The Inter Media Art Institute presents fast food fantasies, in which contradictory values of capitalist society clash – rationality and functionality, overindulgence and convenience. Ever since the 1980s video makers have been exploring these tensions by appropriating the iconography of multinational corporations, questioning the logic of the franchise system, criticizing the labor conditions of the foodservice industry, denouncing the mass production of food, and confessing the sin of gluttony. Their journey takes them from a kebab-shop in Rotterdam to a London burger restaurant, and further to a drive-through in Los Angeles.
