In this latest thematic exhibition of the collection, staged in collaboration with the Generali Foundation, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg examines the interpenetration of the city and the human body based on a selection of works by 25 international artists. Cities have always been a stage and engine for art and social change, and as such have also emerged as a subject of artistic enquiry. Our cities are the product of human imagination and endeavor as well as the setting in which our bodies exist. Their urban architecture, ideologies and economies, the encounter between different cultures, identities, and social environments all form a terrain that influences the meaning and role of our bodies. In the exhibition Bodies–Cities. Collections and Excursions, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg looks at how artists have been exploring the interpenetration of the city and the human body since the 1960s. The social and political upheavals of this decade have changed our perception of the public realm and reverberate in art to this day. The 25 artists in this exhibition have cast the “urbanized” body into a medium to address political causes and existential concerns, an arena of discipline and rebellion, and an instrument for the exploration, occupation, and redefinition of urban spaces. Bodies–Cities is the 12th exhibition of the collection to be staged in collaboration with the Generali Foundation and brings together key works and rarely shown art from the collections of the Generali Foundation and the Museum der Moderne Salzburg with a selection of international loans.
