The examination of time, language, and history is central to the artistic work of the Raqs Media Collective, which was established in New Delhi in 1992.

William Kentridge

O Sentimental Machine

William Kentridge superstar: The South African William Kentridge (*1955) is highly regarded internationally for his works, which he realizes with masterly ease. They combine the humoresque with the incidental and are always characterized by an engaged, critical stance. With the exhibition O Sentimental Machine, his works enter into further dialogue with the grand narratives of civilization based on the entire sculpture collection of the Liebieghaus, which spans 5,000 years. Kentridge understands how to subvert these narratives and simultaneously point out his own entanglements. The accompanying publication carries this historical and political moment forward in the format of a quasi-fictitious guide to the collection.
