Spaciously presented across more than 2,000 square metres in Hamburger Bahnhof’s Rieckhallen, the group exhibition Magical Soup features key works complemented by loans representing the latest generation of artists, with a common point of departure being the nexus of sound, image and social space.
Music has the power to create imaginary worlds. Sound can be used to physically shake space. And images can evoke auditory spaces that extend beyond a canvas or screen. The group exhibition explores the relationship between hearing, seeing, and the experience of socially shaped space. On display are media art pieces, installations and works on paper dating from the 1970s to the present. Geographical, social and imaginary spaces are negotiated on the basis of music, sounds, noises, and voices, and their notation or visual implementation.
