No other term connects art and science more closely than that of symmetry. Symmetry has become a key word in modern art, as well as in modern natural sciences. At the same time, modernism has broken through handed down symmetries and understood assymetries or system ruptures as structural orders and formal relations in connection with tendencies toward abstraction.
ZKM, whose mission includes supporting the alliance of science and art, will organize an exhibition in connection with the European Days of Culture showcasing Hungarian artists’ outstanding visual research on symmetry.
The exhibition will consist mainly of works loaned from the Vasarely Museum in Pécs. This selection will be supplemented by loans from other Hungarian museums.
Curators: Julia Fabenyi, Peter Weibel
