FUTURA. Measuring Time with Ceal Floyer and Pierre HuygheGalerie der Gegenwart, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg January 14 – April 10, 2022 www.hamburger-kunsthalle.de
What is time and how can it be represented and measured artistically? And how can the future be thought? FUTURA. Measuring Time at Hamburger Kunsthalle invites 30 international artists, including Ceal Floyer and Pierre Huyghe, to address fundamental questions about temporality, sustainability and visions. The exhibition architecture transforms the entire first floor of the Galerie der Gegenwart, freeing it from modular walls and partitions. In this open design, artworks and artifacts are presented together in surprising dialogues that span across different historical periods and disciplines.

Upon entering the large-scale installation, visitors encounter a collection of identical plinths that would ordinarily be used to display art objects in a museum. In place of visible objects, each plinth is equipped with a speaker from which visitors can hear the word “thing” sung—edited out of and isolated from a range of pop songs. The result is a playful and thoughtful exploration of language, meaning, and the conventions of museum presentation and spectatorship.
