Tadeusz Kantor: Où sont les neiges d’antan

9 October 2019 – 5 January 2020

With the exhibition, «Tadeusz Kantor : Où sont les neiges d'antan», Museum Tinguely presents one of Poland’s most important theatre and visual artists of the 20th century with one of his expansive works for the stage. Tadeusz Kantor’s (1915-1990) independent underground theatre, devoted to the reality of everyday life and often critically concerned with Poland's suppressed history, is still influential for a young generation of theatre artists today. At Museum Tinguely, from 9. to 20. October, the exhibition Kantor’s show of objects, drawings, film- and photo documentation is accompanied by the Virtual Reality-simulation Cricoterie (2019), by Auriea Harvey & Michaël Samyn. Visitors are invited to be the hands directing a virtual stage filled with a cast of uncanny characters and props, inspired by Kantor’s Theatre of Death and simultaneously, the audience watches as things get out of hand.

Len Lye – motion composer

23 October 2019 – 26 January 2020

 

Len Lye (1901–1980), a native of Christchurch, New Zealand, was one of the most important experimental filmmakers of the 1930s to 1950s. At the same time, living initially in New Zealand and Australia, from 1926 in London and from 1944 in New York City, he created a fascinating body of work embracing all artistic disciplines large parts of which – including his kinetic sculptures – have yet to be discovered. The exhibition will showcase the work of Len Lye in all its variety and breadth, paying special attention to the relationships between the different media that he set in motion.
