​Always different, always the same
an essay on art and systems

Art and systems have always been linked with an amour fou. Humans are for ever abstracting and arranging in order to master their environment. This commitment to a system gives rise to art and culture. The international group exhibition shows high-class works of minimal and conceptual art of the 1960s and confronts them with contemporary art. Today, 50 years after systems thinking has reshaped society, all kinds of systems constitute the basis of a functioning society. The exhibition explores the question of the difference between the two decades. What can our preoccupation with always the same in an ever changing form tell us about our society and its art.
