Bettina von Arnim
The Cyborgs and their Traces. 1960 to 2020
Exhibition in the Art Association Lingen
12th May to 16th August 2020
The exhibition “The Cyborgs and their Traces” includes paintings in oil on canvas and etchings from the years 1960 to 2020. In many of her works Bettina von Arnim reflects the theme “Man / Machine” in an imaginative way. Against the background of the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the moon landing and the arms race during the Cold War, the pictures reflect the theme of being enclosed in metal and suggest that the technical shell has replaced man. They tell of the destruction of nature, animals and plants by the technocrats. (Extract from press release)
