KIEL.- The exhibition "The Human Senses and Perception in Contemporary Art" explores the significance of body navigation systems in the contemporary art world. The faculties of hearing, touch, smell, taste and sight are the five senses through which we perceive the world and ourselves. In one section of the exhibition visitors have the opportunity of experiencing installations that directly address issues of perception via the five senses. For this part organizers have selected works by Sonja Alhäuser (Taste), Vadim Fishkin (Touch), Heribert Friedl (Smell), Erik Kessels (Sight) and Via Lewandowsky (Hearing).

A further focus of the exhibition comprises works in which individual processes of perception have been transposed into visual systems. Thus, on the whole, the show comprises various forms of direct and indirect participation.

In conjunction with the show, the museum published a catalogue containing illustrations of all the exhibits.

Participating artists:
Herman van Aldewereld, Sonja Alhäuser, Louise Bourgeois, Tony Cragg, Tim Eitel, Ayse Erkmen, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Vadim Fishkin, Thomas Florschuetz, Heribert Friedl, Gabriella Gerosa, Helga Griffiths, Urban Grünfelder, Gregor Hildebrandt, Rolf Julius, Erik Kessels, Via Lewandowsky, Eugenio Merino, Ernesto Neto, Carsten Nicolai, Daniel Pflumm, Bettina Pousttchi, Paul Pretzer, Bernd Ribbeck, Jeremy Shaw, Roman Signer, Michael Sistig, Thomas Struth, Ivonne Thein, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Rosemarie Trockel, Sam Taylor-Wood, Bill Viola, Eva von Platen, Sonja Vordermaier, Johannes Wohnseifer, Michael Wolf, Erwin Wurm.
