The museum welcomes you in compliance with CovidCheck

Commissioned to devise a unique project for Mudam’s Jardin des Sculptures, artists Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil (b. 1975, Luxembourg/b. 1964, Paris) have conceived this exhibition especially for this glass-roofed space, responding to its function as a ‘garden’ for artworks.

Rich in visual references to the avant-garde movements of the early twentieth century (including the Bauhaus, Constructivism and Cubism) the work of Feipel and Bechameil addresses the complex relationships that exist between technical progress and industry. Reflecting, on the one hand, a period of considerable growth and change, and on the other, the social revolutions that took place and the accompanying hope and disillusionment, their work draws attention to the discrepancy between social progress and an improvement in living conditions, and the slow dehumanisation and fragmentation of the human body. Today, our societies are composed of individuals who depend on technological ‘prostheses’ meant to assist them in their everyday life.

Furthermore, we invite you to attend the conversation between the artists and the curator of the exhibition, Clément Minighetti, which will take place at 18h in the Mudam Auditorium. No booking required.
