Following the spectacular exhibition of his work in London, Olafur Eliasson (*1967) is now showing a major installation, which has been completely redesigned especially for the Kunsthaus Zürich, in early 2020. It is precisely such large-scale works by the Danish-Icelandic artist that magically attract the viewer. [expand title="more"]Olafur Eliasson says that at the core of his work is the experience of the physical encounter with the work itself. For years he has been one of the most important contemporary artists, he dealt with the topic of sustainability at an early stage and has fascinated many people with ecological themes. The book and exhibition revolve around our relationship to other species and life forms on earth. Olafur Eliasson's plea for a world view of coexistence and cooperation becomes all the more apparent when he transforms the museum space into an immersive overall installation that appeals to our senses. Without becoming entangled in the scientistic abstract or purely formal, this is reminiscent of scientific arrangements with which physical natural phenomena such as light, water, movement and reflection are explored. The experiential space that the artist creates directly forms a sustainable resonating body for themes such as climate change, migration or the exploitation of our planet's resources. Olafur Eliasson succeeds in translating questions relevant to survival and the associated social concerns into a formal language that not only appeals to people's minds, but also touches and moves them emotionally.[/expand]

'More Than Real - Art in the Digital Age' takes on a multidisciplinary approach to describe the encounters between the arts and new technologies, focusing on the impact of technology on artistic and curatorial practices, the potential threats that the former might impose on the field, and how, increasingly, the so called virtual reality is manipulating what coming together means. [expand title="more"] More Than Real - Art in the Digital World is released in occasion of the Verbier Art Summit 2018 (an event grouping innovative thinkers in a beautiful, intimate -almost hidden- site for meaningful dialogues.) Put together by Michelle Kuo, head of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Daniel Birnbaum, director of Moderna Museet, the book comprises a series of texts by acclaimed artists and theoriciens like Pamela Rosenkranz, Ed Atkins, Douglas Coupland and Olafur Eliasson. [/expand] read Review

During the Verbier Art Summit ‘More than Real. Art in the digital Age’, hold in 2018 on top of the Alps, key figures and leaders of the art scene came together to discuss one thing: What art can do and mean in the Digital Age. A first hint lies within the title itself: digital Art is not that alien to art practices before the rise of zeros and ones as one might expect. Digital art- same as its pre-digital ancestor intervene with reality in one way or another – and can lead to change and innovation. While Olafur Eliasson, Ed Atkins, Douglas Coupland among others pondered together about possible futures of art and its cultural value, there is one common undertone which is rather striking and characteristic of this Summit: ‘To move in an increasingly digital world does not make us more robotic, but instead calls for us to become more human’, as Daniel Birnbaum puts it. How digital art can be used as a medium to enhance our world is illustrated best in the 2nd interdisciplinary compilation of Verbier Art Summit whose contributors are, once again, willing to see the bigger picture as a chance rather than a threat. Got hooked? You can find the first publication to the inaugural Verbier Art Summit ‘Size Matters! (De)Growth of the 21st Century Art Museum’ here or even stream some of the talks from the top of ‘The-Magic-Mountain’-alike scenery here.   Buy
