For the French philosopher, writer, translator, and visual artist Pierre Klossowski, art was "actually the science of the 'false,'" which had to be transferred into the sphere of the 'true' and the supposedly assured 'real.
Pierre Klossowski challenged the established concept of the image with what he himself called the simulacrum (mirage, illusory image, or image of the gods). Under the aspects of desire, value, and appearance, he opened up a space in which the work of art and the artistic combined with an "Eros of creation" took on a central role.
The exhibition illustrates how Klossowski's artistic principles of order entail a traversal between different levels of perception, reality and art. It offers the opportunity to explore the seriously serene universe of this great mind.
