15. February – 27. April 2014
A wide range of artistic works from the collections of the FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais and the Kunstmuseum Thun constitute the basis for We Fragment, Collect and Narrate. The focus of the exhibition is a technique that is more than just familiar in our daily lives – collecting, disassembling and reassembling of knowledge, experiences or images. Most diverse works of the two collections are juxtaposed against each other in order to examine the relevance of collage, assemblage or montage today. The exhibition focuses its attention not only on the physical "cut and paste" but also considers how contemporary art responds to our complex and chaotic society in the time of fragmentation.
