Alicja Kwade

Polish-born and Berlin-based artist Alicja Kwade’s most recent installation at the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt takes as its inspiration the pendulum experiments of the nineteenth-century French physicist Léon Foucault, which provided evidence of Earth’s rotation. A series of quasi-scientific set-ups installed in the Schirn Rotunda, Kwade’s works superimpose established scientific knowledge and paradoxical social realities, resulting in a playful commentary on the transformation of space and the true movement of time.
The latest volume in a series of publications in cooperation with the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, this volume presents a detailed look at this complex work by a captivating, internationally acclaimed artist.
