The exhibition presents contemporary artworks that engage with ideas about time and space, addressing the power of astrology or shamanism as a conduit between the rational and the supernatural, as well as expressing humankind’s desire for order and logical explanations for all phenomena.
Produced by Bildmuseet and curated by François Bucher and Lina López, the exhibition was supplemented by series of conversations about changing worldviews with researchers from the University of Umeå.
