The exhibition “moving is in every direction. Environments – Installations –  Narrative Spaces”  traces the history of installation art from the 1960s until today with a focus on narrative structures. As the visitors move through the exhibition, they explore expansive walk-in environments, video and sound installations, as well as cross-media works especially developed for the exhibition. The non-linear narrative structure, put forth by Gertrude Stein, to which the exhibition title relates, serves as a starting point for exploring sculptural arrangements, image sequences, or spatially staged narratives. Within the approximately 3,500 square metres of exhibition space, there are installations by Marcel Broodthaers, Isa Genzken/Wolfgang Tillman, Susan Philipsz, Pipilotti Rist, Bunny Rogers, Wolf Vostell.
