DESTE FOUNDATION PROJECT SPACE IN HYDRA / HYDRA
Dream MachinesDESTE Foundation, in Hydra, hosts the exhibition "Dream Machines" from Tuesday 20 June to Monday 30 October, 2023.
"Dream Machines" is a small exhibition that explores the impact of technology on human imagination. The emergence of a new medium always gives rise to new possibilities for art, and each epoch has its key artists in whose creations a novel encounter between technology and creativity crystalize. "Dream Machines" presents a number of momentous works, from Ulf Linde’s reinterpretation of Marcel Duchamp’s Coffee Mill (1911)-described by André Breton as an infernal machine- to a selection of recent experiments exploring virtual spheres.
The exhibition, curated by Daniel Birnbaum and Massimiliano Gioni, features works by Marcel Duchamp, Fischli & Weiss, H.R. Giger, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Brion Gysin, Jeff Koons, Mire Lee, Ulf Linde, Henrik Olesen, Philippe Parreno, Seth Price, William Reich, Pipilotti Rist, Pamela Rosenkranz, Mika Rottenberg, Sturtevant, Andro Wekua, Ulla Wiggen, and many others.
