The value of an artwork is not equal to its price
Drawing on a selection of art-historical, museum quality works from the 1980s and 1990s in Belgian private collections, this exhibition narrates this pivotal moment in the history of art when artists, making use of concepts such as simulacrum, simulation and value, tinkered with the paradigm of the artwork’s unique character. The show features 40 artists from 34 collections.
