Der Loop ist allgegenwärtig - ob in der Musik, der Videokunst oder in Hotellobbys und Wohnzimmern, wo auf Monitoren Kaminfeuer endlos flackern oder Fische im Aquarium vorbeischwimmen. Zugleich ist der geschlossene Kreislauf, die Endlosschleife, spätestens seit der Antike ein Topos der Kulturgeschichte, Alchemie, Religion und Philosophie. Mit Never Ending Stories präsentiert das Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg erstmals eine formal und inhaltlich, räumlich sowie zeitlich breit angelegte, interdisziplinäre Recherche zum Phänomen der Endlosschleife in Kunst, Film, Architektur, Musik, Literatur und Kulturgeschichte. Der ausstellungsbegleitende Katalog beleuchtet das vielgestaltige Thema ebenso wissenschaftlich wie literarisch und kreativ. Mit 13 Essays, zahlreichen Quellentexten und über dreihundert Abbildungen stellt dieser Katalog ein Grundlagenwerk dar, das stets konzis um sein Thema kreist und dabei immer wieder aufs Neue überraschende Erkenntnisse und Einblicke eröffnet.
Mit Werken von: Adel Abdessemed, Abramovic/Ulay, Francis Alÿs, Robert Barta, Thomas Bayrle, Max Beckmann, Joseph Beuys, Michel Blazy, Etienne-Louis Boullée, Marcel Broodthaers, Julio Cortázar, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Thomas A.

Summary

The loop is omnipresent—whether in music and video art, or hotel lobbies and living rooms, where flickering flames or aquariums with ceaselessly darting fish run continually on monitors. At the same time, the self-contained circuit, the endless loop, has been a theme in the fields of cultural history, alchemy, religion, and philosophy since classical antiquity, at the latest. With Never Ending Stories, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg presents the first extensive examination of the loop phenomenon in art, film, architecture, music, literature, and cultural history, taking a comprehensive interdisciplinary look at the subject as regards time and place as well as form and content.?The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive scholarly catalogue edited by Ralf Beil, which will shed light on this multifaceted theme, examining it from the aspects of science, literature, and creativity. Featuring thirteen essays, numerous original sources, and more than three hundred illustrations, this catalogue is a foundational work that revolves persistently around its theme, constantly opening up new and surprising perspectives and insights.With works by:Adel Abdessemed, Abramovic/Ulay, Francis Alÿs, Robert Barta, Thomas Bayrle, Max Beckmann, Joseph Beuys, Michel Blazy, Etienne-Louis Boullée, Marcel Broodthaers, Julio Cortázar, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Thomas A.
