Chronorama. Snapshots from the 20th century

"The medium is immaterial, but actuality is real" Kimsooja
"My body is a symbolic needle that weaves all the fabrics of society, geography, culture, economy, fashion, and everything around it. I wrap all the people around me, humanity, in my body and in my mind. I see video as a means of wrapping the reality of the world and nature."
"Ideas are timeless" Leonardo Sonnoli
"The catalogue is the object that remains after the exhibition and therefore it is essential that it represents not only what was displayed but also the spirit of what was shown and the artist's idea, which in some cases can also be an interpretation of the artist's idea."
"You cannot hold time, you cannot bundle it or archive it" Dayanita Singh
"My approach to photography is to treat the photograph as just raw material just as a chef would treat vegetables and to really listen to the images and see what they want to be, what form they want to develop into."
The Pinault Collection gathers over 10.000 works that offer a perspective on the art from the 1960s to date.
It presents “Beyond the walls” exhibitions and supports creation through artist in residence programmes.
