Magical Soup. Medienkunst aus der Sammlung der Nationalgalerie, der Friedrich Christian Flick Collection im Hamburger Bahnhof und Leihgaben
Magical Soup explores the power and magic with which images, sound, music and language create, reveal or hide reality. The respective works move between close observation, radical self-expression and conscious deconstruction of identity.
The exhibition pursues these explorations of the relationship between (moving) image and sound with works ranging from media art pioneers to a younger generation of artists.
