Art as a social tool for cross-cultural exchange

Which way do I go? We consciously and unconsciously travel numerous distances every day—not only shorter and longer distances, but inner ones as well. Both the works and the staging by the Danish artist Jeppe Hein (*1974) at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg address this theme. In a labyrinth of spaces, paths, intersections, and squares, visitors not only encounter the minimalistally, kinetically, and socially oriented works by Hein but are also surprised by new and site-specific works. After his burnout in December 2009, he expanded his spectrum of material: sound, resonance, silence, scents, or breath characterize his new works and reflect his examination of Eastern philosophies and practices such as Buddhism, yoga, and meditation. The catalogue is also as personal as his watercolor journal in the exhibition. Jeppe Hein becomes palpable as both an artist and a person in a very open conversation with the curator Uta Ruhkamp as well as in essays by Finn Janning and Peter Høeg.
