Real and virtual spaces are interpenetrating with increasing speed. The topography of natural habitats has become alien to us in many cases. Reality as an experience is disappearing. And with its loss, the longing for its rediscovery is growing.
In a time of dystopias, in which multiple crises are upsetting our world and the future seems gray, the Museum Ulm is setting out in search of the paradisiacal Garden of Eden with this first exhibition curated via the digital platform nextmuseum.io. The enchanted garden was, is and remains a motif of longing as a place of retreat and idyll. Transfigured as an ideal, the garden stands today more than ever for the lost unity of man and nature. Its beauty conveys an idea of the supernatural and the glory of paradise, for which people have yearned for centuries.
Comparable to a botanical garden, the Museum Ulm collects, maintains and exhibits treasures from 40,000 years of art and cultural history in its listed ensemble of buildings from the 15th-20th centuries. The selected artistic positions on the theme of the Garden of Paradise are brought together in the exhibition project and the museum is transformed into an alternative place of wonder, experience and rediscovery.
