There are things that cannot be depicted, things that one cannot see and maybe not even imagine. With them, the impossibility of visualization outside of one’s imagination is an inherent quality. In 1920, Paul Klee wrote in Schöpferische Konfession (Creative Confession) that art did not reproduce the visible, but made visible. It is this im/possibility of making visible the invisible that is the focus of the exhibition “For the Use of Those Who See”, which will open at KW Institute for Contemporary Art on Saturday, November 21, 2009, at 5 p.m.

Curated by Susanne Pfeffer, the exhibition shows how artists deal with forms of transition, disappearance and that which eludes us. It explores the boundaries of that which is invisible and the aesthetic visualization of that which appears to be impossible. Many of the presented works by international artists touch on related disciplines and provide entry points to other fields of perception.

“For the Use of Those Who See” is one of the most important projects supported by the Schering Stiftung in 2009. The idea behind the exhibition – reflecting both on the power of the image and the limits of perception across genres – goes far beyond contemporary art and is an important topic of our times.
