Lunchtime viewing of the current exhibition

Meet one of our talented guides and get an introduction relevant exhibition Ways of Unseeing. On Tuesdays at 12:30 we offer shorter lunchtime tours (approx. 15 min).

Ways of Unseeing is about the inadequacy of the visual representation. How our vision works, what we see and what we don't see. In addition to the sorting of one's own vision, voluntarily as well as involuntarily, there is also visual material that is never made available, it may be that which is considered unimportant or that which is censored. The exhibition title refers to the well-known BBC television series and book by the English art critic John Berger (1926–2017) Ways of Seeing from 1972 who wanted to demystify art and make it accessible to more people. He believed that great demands on specialized prior knowledge prevent the art from spreading and having a fragile significance for the individual and society at large. In extension of Berger's critical examination of the gaze and viewing, this exhibition asks the question whether it is not also important to learn not to see?
