In the spring of 2018, the major exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden will focus on the art of the exhibition itself. This exhibition will explore what it actually means to exhibit something, and how this can be shown.
"Exhibiting the Exhibition" takes a look into the past, at the present, and also gives us a glimpse of the future of the exhibition. Precursors of modern museums will mark the starting point of the exhibition and it ends with the curatorial situations we're currently witnessing. The show brings together several hundred works, which show, for example, how objects used to be presented in early cabinets of curiosities, which forms of display emerged in the 20th century, and how art is presented today.
