With the “The Future Archive” the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein will present contemporary cultural producers that engage with the groundbreaking artistic approaches developed at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS) in the 1970s and 80s. The CAVS was founded by György Kepes at the Massachussetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, USA, in 1976. With radical ideas such as the Techno-Social Movement, its directors and fellows were way ahead of their time.
At the n.b.k., co-curator Ute Meta Bauer has gathered a younger generation of artists, architects and designers who were inspired in their current work by CAVS Fellows such as Maryanne Amacher, Muriel Cooper, Otto Piene or Aldo Tambellini. Their presupposition is that the historical archive is exemplary for the future and a precondition for innovation.
Parallel to this, historical and contemporary documentations by CAVS as well as works from n.b.k.’s collection are on view. The exhibition will be accompanied by live performances and talks about artistic contributions to interdisciplinary research.
