– in the framework of "beuys 2021. 100 jahre joseph beuys“ of the State of NRW –

With the figure of the shaman that Joseph Beuys cultivated throughout his career as its starting point, this exhibition focuses on »techno-shamanistic« artistic positions today. The artists in question not only regard shamanism as a technology in its own right, they also use other (speculative) technologies to seek out shamanic energies. Many of the tropes that Beuys so iconically employed to heal and transform society, to cultivate a spiritual connection with the environment, to overcome the power and the logic of capital are now deployed by contemporary artists, who thus update his strategies and questions for the digital age.
