Interview with the artist HC Ohl about his current exhibition @ LV1871 – Maximiliansplatz 5 in Munich

All about ” Beschleunigung “ Die Ausstellung heißt „Beschleunigtes Paradies“ – was müssen wir uns denn darunter vorstellen? Die Beschleunigung ist das große Thema unserer Zeit. Dabei geht es nicht nur um beschleunigte Materie wie zum Beispiel einen Körper in einem Auto, sondern auch um gesellschaftliche Prozesse. Zum Beispiel Kommunikation: Beim Telefonieren spreche ich mit einer Person, die sich aber an einem anderen Ort befindet. Auflösung von Raum und Zeit. Beschleunigung: Gesteigerte Geschwindigkeit verkürzt die Zeit, um einen anderen Ort zu erreichen, bzw. verkürzt die (empfundene) Strecke zwischen den Orten.

But after having seen the new Stars Wars: The force awakens at the Gloria Palast at Stachus (“Karlsplatz” for those of you that are not long enough in our beautiful city to know that all Munich people only refer to Karlsplatz as Stachus ), we changed our mind.
