The Presence of Absence – Matter and Traces / Imprints of Life in Time

12 Octobre 2024 - 2 March 2025
Frankfurter Kunstverein

The exhibition The Presence of Absence will occupy the entire exhibition space of the Frankfurter Kunstverein, covering 1,000 square meters. Thematically, the exhibition revolves around humanity’s timeless engagement with the idea of transience and its forms of representation in art. The title refers to matter as a presence where traces of the living are inscribed. Vital energy is powerful yet fleeting. It leaves a mark, a trace that, captured in matter, can endure over time.

The exhibition will juxtapose exhibits spatially, presenting the abstract idea of a “presence of the absent” from both artistic and scientific perspectives within an expanded conceptual space. 

With Heidi Bucher, Lawrence Malstaf, Marshmallow Laser Feast, Petra Noordkamp, Claudio Parmiggiani, Toni R. Toivonen and with exhibits from the Archaeological Site of Pompeii, the Prehistoric Museum of Florence, the Natural History Museum of Vienna, the LWL-Museum für Naturkunde Münster and the Institute for Theoretical Physics at Goethe University Frankfurt

The exhibition is a cooperation with:
Senckenberg Society for Nature Research and
Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP) of the Goethe University Frankfurt
