It's no longer as simple as it was before: modern men do the washing up, look after their children and are considerate and sometimes weak, whilst the ideal persists of a rational man, who dominates political and economic life and supports his family. Our perception of men has become inconsistent and is constantly changing. The "Wann ist man ein Mann?" (When is a man a man?) exhibition at the Museum of Ancient Art questions the perception of men in Ancient Greece: how was masculinity defined and how was it artistically represented? How did "man" see himself? What was considered to be typically masculine at that time? With the help of selected collector's pieces, this exhibition examines the role of men in Greek society and family life.
Tinguely's "Méta-Matic" drawing machines were one of his most radical inventions. In 2009 the "Metamatic Research Initiative" in Amsterdam mounted a large competition to explore the potential of drawing machines for art today. Ten selected projects with a wide variety of perspectives prove the continued relevance of the theme, amongst them a performance by Marina Abramovic, a large environment by Thomas Hirschhorn, and an installation Jon Kessler.
