A dialogue between non-Western and Western cultures on anthropological, sociopolitical, and environmental as well as economics-related and day-to-day questions


Jaume Plensa

The Secret Heart
This catalogue is published to accompany the eponymous exhibition project of the Catalan installation artist and creator of large sculptures Jaume Plensa. The core of his project is the ‘Secret Heart’, a massive suspended heart in the former gasometer of the Augsburg-Oberhausen gasworks created from a critical engagement with the text collection "The Secret Heart of the Clock", the posthumous notations of the Nobel literature laureate Elias Canetti. In addition, Plensa exhibits site-specific works in the Baroque Schaezler Palace as well as in the H2 Centre for Contemporary Art in the Glass Palace, which are also documented here.
