Anima Mundi

Only two weeks left to see this interesting exhibition in Museum Boijmans van Beuningen; carefully and precisely composed by artist Hans van der Ham. An exhibition not to be missed.

Robot Pepper welcomes you at the beginning of the exhibition

“In the exhibition ANIMA MUNDI, artist Hans van der Ham explores our ability to animate the world around us. Who are we? What distinguishes us as living beings from dead matter? ANIMA MUNDI shows that we have always sought to push the boundaries. We seek contact with the dead, we breathe life into objects, and form relationships with artistic or artificial likenesses of ourselves. And for millennia, we have explored the possibility of living on after our bodies have expired. ANIMA MUNDI shows a diversity of artworks from the past and present in the context of ethnography, alchemy, biotechnology, anatomy and robotics.”
