Bernhard Buhmann: The Chaser, the Ambusher and the Fickle

18 March

Free

Titled after the ghost characters from the classic arcade game Pac-Man, Bernhard Buhmann’s latest solo show dissects issues of identity and societal uncertainty in a world teetering at the edge of technological singularity. Using Pac-Man as a analogically rich launch platform, Buhmann’s work considers how mistranslations and deceptions define how technologies infiltrate the world, and how that can create society-wide unease and unrest. “I am fascinated by phenomena which draw their strength from vagueness and confusion,” says Buhmann. “Those moments of historical and societal uncertainty when fears and hopes affect how we imagine the future, how we behave amongst each other, our emotional states.”

To 1 May.
