From the Age of the Poets
7 September – 20 October 2012

The functioning of language, its limits and possibilities, has kept especially philosophers and poets, Dadaists and semiotic theorists busy in the last century. The gallery Aanant & Zoo dedicates the exhibition From the Age of the Poets to the interplay between the wonder of language, truth, the possibility of mis- or not understanding and poetry as a legitimate access to the world. Twenty-five well-known and lesser-known positions of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries create a room, in which these questions can oscillate. A central topic of the exhibition is translation. Many artists share the possible translatability from language to language, from system to system, from the concrete to the abstract and occasionally backwards.
