8th "Socle du Monde" in Herning, Denmark
The 2020 edition of the Socle du Monde Biennial explores the artistic universe of Piero Manzoni where art and life melt. Therefore the 8th Biennale will draw a focus on the Italian Arte Povera group, challenging and discussing our concepts of art – all in the spirit of Manzoni. But the Biennale wants to start also a two-way street between the museum, as an institution where art is shown and preserved, and the city, and how art can function in a city and confront the place from which the impulses come: daily life.
"ZERO in Vibration" at the MONA Museum in Hobart Tasmania
Since the establishment of the Zero Foundation ZERO has been introduced to new generations of curators, museum director and artists—and next year to the other (?) side of the world: Tasmania. This exhibition at the Museum for Old and New Art (Mona), entitled Vibration in Zero, it is the first ever to bring core members from the international Zero movement to Australia. Zero, the largest art movement after the Second World War. But the exhibition includes also the influential Marcel Duchamp, representing the conceptual aspect of vibration, Victor Vasarely the optical; and Lucio Fontana with his 1946 ‘Manifesto Blanco’ calling for a dynamic principle of movement through time and space.
