Attacks, Transformations, Explosions
29 October 2016 — 5 February 2017

Eight international artists respond with massive interventions, transformations and violations to the unconventional and self-confident architecture of the Museum Marta Herford.

With its flowing, dancing forms, Marta Herford is always a surprising exhibition venue. The architect Frank Gehry took much of his inspiration from artists for his dynamic spatial sculptures. The exhibition reverses this relationship, with international artists responding in turn to the architecture and making it newly experienceable: proliferating forms cover the walls like parasites; mountains of material land like spaceships, colours explode on the surfaces. The alienated space allows us to experience the energy of the creative and develops a new poesy.
