Harm van den Dorpel in Wer nicht denken will, fliegt raus – Handlungsanweisungen nach Beuys at the Museum Kurhaus, Kleve

July 1, 2016

The show—which includes eight other artists, including Hito Steyerl and Alice Channer—takes its title from a provocative saying by Joseph Beuys, which can be translated, “He who does not think will be thrown out.” In an interview, curator Heinrich Dietz said he wanted to further explore Beuys’s suggestion that the engagement and interpretation of art is entirely contingent on the ability to think. The works by van den Dorpel challenge the notion that thinking and the capacity for making and appreciating art are exclusive to human beings. Exhibition continues until 18 September 2016
