Entropy of a City – Julia Stoschek Collection
at Műcsarnok / Kunsthalle Budapest, Hungary
curators: Líva Rózsás and József Készman
It is possible to determine the degree of disorder, or entropy, of urban space and the environment which results from human intervention – the city as a system. Thus, we can speak of high entropy in the case of an unexpected “system crash,” such as when a museum is on fire, and low entropy when a Volkswagen beetle will predictably never reach the top of the hill.
The Julia Stoschek Collection is a private collection of contemporary artwork, with its primary focus on time-based media. Each year, new works are selected from the collection and put on view in the exhibition space at its location, in Duesseldorf as well as at outside venues.
The concept of the group show was developed jointly by
the Julia Stoschek Collection and Műcsarnok / Kunsthalle Budapest.
