Loans from Collection at the Pinakothek der Moderne

The new exhibition “Glitch – The Art of Interference” of the Sammlung Moderne Kunst at the Pinakothek der Moderne has recently opened. On 1,200 square meters, the special exhibition is dedicated to one of the youngest and most unpredictable art forms: so-called “glitch art”, which specifically draws attention to the productive side of the flawed.

Among the works by internationally renowned artists such as Arthur Jafa, Joan Jonas, Nam June Paik, Pipilotti Rist and Wolfgang Tilmans are two photographic works by Chinese artist Jiang Pengyi from the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, which have been loaned to the Pinakothek der Moderne for the exhibition. In “Surrendor No. 2” and “Surrendor No. 3”, the artist removes the polaroids’ emulsion from its base material and places this thin, transparent substrate on a nail and new surface. Pengyi’s works were last shown at the foundation in 2020/21 as part of the exhibition “About Us. Young Photography in China”.
