Museum Frieder Burda


Project description

In dialogue with artificial beings

The Museum Frieder Burda is known for its collection of classic works by renowned artists such as Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock or Andy Warhol. If the exhibits shown up to this point exemplify the attainment of changed perspectives on works, the „Transformers“ exhibition focuses on the changes brought about by technological progress and looks at the power emanating from virtual space.

Artificial intelligences, avatars and animations stand side by side with visitors, viewing works on display with them, illuminating the exhibition with a critical perspective and creating an atmosphere that was previously atypical for the museum in this way. Louisa Clement, Ryan Gander, Timur Si-Qin and Jordan Wolfson exhibited their art on the museum’s premises from December 2022 to April 2023.

This 124-page catalogue features 90 colour illustrations of the exhibited works. The thread-stitched hardcover is covered with a cover material in Diamond White fabric look and finished with a large-scale deep embossing on the title, which offers space for a lenticular image. The cover material was printed in two passes with a PMS special colour in Silver Grey and reveals the original colour tone on the spine and the U2 through cut-outs for the typography. The offset font of the catalogue title „Transformers“ refers to the effect of the pasted lenticular image. Both the metallic, cool grey of the cover and the movement in the multi-dimensional image take up the content of the hardcover thematically. The dyed through endpapers in Poppy Red offers a striking contrast.
