Doug Aitken: Doug Aitken

 

This title is published alongside the exhibition at SCHIRN Kunsthalle, Frankfurt (9 July - 27 September 2015). Edited by Max Hollein and Matthias Ulrich, includes texts by Joseph Akel, Dominic Eichler, Jörg Heiser, Martin Herbert, and April Lamm. Civilization raises hopes – civilization is terrifying. These feelings are palpable in the inimitable works of art by the American artist Doug Aitken. His spectacular film and sound works take visitors on a synaesthetic journey around the world and into themselves – in an irresistible maelstrom of expressive images and rhythmic landscapes. With four expansive film installations and correlating sculptures as well as a site-specific sound installation, the exhibition will present an overview of the internationally renowned artist’s heterogeneous oeuvre throughout the entire exhibition area of the SCHIRN – and beyond.
