thomas hirschhorn in ‘under the clouds’ at serralves foundation in porto, portugal

20 June 2015
Thomas Hirschhorn has work included in a major group show at Serralves Foundation in Porto titled ‘Under the Clouds: from Paranoia to the Digital Sublime'.

Since the second half of the 20th century, we have lived under the shadow of two clouds: the mushroom cloud of the atomic bomb, and the ‘cloud' of distributed information networks. How did the central metaphor of cold war paranoia become the utopian metaphor of today? ‘Under the Clouds' explores the contemporary sublime that has replaced the natural one, and the interrelated effects and affects of these two clouds on life and work, leisure and love, and on images, bodies, and minds.

The exhibition runs from 20 June until 20 September 2015.
