press release

Unknown Quantity came about as the result of a long-standing interest in the writings and thought of Paul Virilio: the increasing development of accidents as an indirect consequence of man's inventions.

This exhibition does by no means intend to provide a complete overview of the history of accidents, nor does it explore the many ways in which the accident manifests itself in art. Instead, through a selection of documents and the work of contemporary artists, it aims to open up a discussion on the accident and its impact on our world.
