Reinhart Koselleck's images of time

Reinhart Koselleck (1923-2006) counts as one of the most important German historians of the 20th century. He taught at Bielefeld University from 1973 until 1988.

The international group exhibition is, therefore, risking a speculative look at the human species, where qualities such as vulnerability, imperfection or emotionality suddenly become its most important distinguishing features. It presents an accessible environment of video works, interventions in the exhibition space and performances to question and reflect our self-image as humans. »
