The Hairy Blob: How the visualization of time impacts thinking about resources, curated by Adelheid Mers

The group exhibition Hairy Blob presents works by artists who tease, tweak, stretch, jumble, compress, arrest, and intensify time, using video, sculpture, drawing, installation, movement, sound, and several participatory events. Rather than thinking about time in terms of memory or nostalgia, these artists experiment with images of time both seriously and irreverently, addressing uses, interpretations, and ownership of land, goods, and architectural environments in the present and their implications for the future.
