The Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim: Found in Translation

February 11 - May 1, 2011 │ New York

The latest exhibition in the Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim is Found in Translation, a collection of recent artworks that look to translation as a means of understanding the world.

The latest exhibition in the Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim is Found in Translation, a collection of recent artworks that look to translation, in both its linguistic and more figurative senses, as a means of understanding an increasingly globalized world. With political, economic, and social issues intertwined across national boundaries, translation has become a fundamental tool, linguistically and figuratively, for making sense of reality. Taking this concept as a model, Found in Translation presents recent videos and films that investigate the ways cultural difference is negotiated through written or spoken language. Artists including Patty Chang, Omer Fast, Sharon Hayes, and Sharif Waked explore the intersections of politics, history, fantasy, and text, critically commenting on the past while producing richly imagined possibilities for the present. Found in Translation is the third exhibition in the Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim. The show will travel to the Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, in early 2012.
