This exhibition features an international spectrum of art works from the late 1960s to present which explore how the human body interacts with its physical and socio-cultural environment. The exhibition not only demonstrates how the body itself is portrayed, but also how artists have rediscovered physicality as a resource of artistic material for their art production.

Matthew Barney, Robert Mapplethorpe, Trisha Donnelly, Vito Acconci, Mike Parr, Piero Manzoni, Paul McCarthy, Paul Thek, Pipilotti Rist, Marina Abramovic and many others
