“More than humans“, showing from 25 September to 1 December 2019 at Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, entrusts the discovery of an exo- and eco-centered world to a mighty duo composed of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Tomás Saraceno. In this exhibition, they combine their awareness of disappearing biodiversity and appetite for unexplored worlds to forge new relationships with species, time, and technology. Tomás Saraceno shares his work on spiders through his floating worlds, which invite visitors to connect with the creature through the senses in order to reconsider its surrounding ecosystem. As artists, shamans, and geeks, the two artists are ushering in a new era where great intelligence is decentralising art towards a new awareness, with new desires for knowledge and experiences… with non-human beings.
