Through the work of an intergenerational group of artists, the exhibition and book propose that art acts as an investigative and experimental form of inquiry, addressing or amending what is explained through traditional scientific or mathematical means: entropy, matter, time (cosmic, geological), energy, topology, mimicry, perception, consciousness, et cetera. Sometimes employing scientific methodologies or the epistemology of science, other times investigating phenomena not restricted to any scientific discipline, art can be seen as a form of inquiry into the physical and natural world. In this sense, both art and science share an interest in knowledge, realism, and observable phenomena, yet are subject to different logics, principles of reasoning, and conclusions.

Designed by acclaimed graphic designers Scott King and Regis Tosetti, this vibrant artist’s book compendium offers up a complete remix of art, discourse and propaganda based on the activities of Germany’s Kunstverein Munchen between 2005 and 2009. Visual and textual documentation was collected, sorted and jumbled up to create new constellations and relationships, rendering book as exhibition and exhibition as book. Spilling over with inserts and full-color reproductions, Be Nice Share Everything Have Fun contains contributions from Allora & Calzadilla, Lutz Bacher, Victor Burgin, Tom Burr, William S.
