An Encyclopedia of Tenderness // Eine Enzyklopädie des Zarten

March 18, 2018 – 18 April, 2018
Galerie im Körnerpark
Berlin, Germany
Curated by Anne Brannys

 The exhibition project “An Encyclopedia of Tenderness” is based on the dissertation of the same name by Anne Brannys. In it, the artist illuminates the central concept of the delicate from different perspectives and interlinks human and scientific as well as artistic questions. In eight focal points, the exhibition unfolds the theme as a walk-in encyclopaedia in a spatial structure specially developed for the presentation. This spatially rhythmic order of knowledge is at the same time permeable and allows cross-connections between the exhibits through a sensory guidance system. The artistic works – a selection from an extensive archive of positions, submitted on a call for tender – illustrate a diverse range of approaches to the subject and explore the complexity of the term in a sensory perceptible way. Thus, the physically experienceable experience of an exhibition becomes a logical extension of the collection of knowledge available in book form.
