Sensing Nature From Within

Moderna Museet , Malmö (Sweden)

28.09.2019 - 08.03.2020




Much of the natural world, from which large parts of humanity have thoroughly tried to distance itself, no longer exists. This realisation is starting to increasingly dawn on us and has resulted in a mounting inclination to reconsider old truths and seek out new ways of living and understanding the world.

In many places today, texts are being written, lectures given, and exhibitions held that in a variety of ways to explore man’s complex relationship to the living earth. Moderna Museet Malmö wants to actively contribute to these important reflections and is therefore presenting Sensing Nature from Within during the fall of 2019 and spring of 2020.

The project combines an international art exhibition with an interdisciplinary programme of seminars, discussions, and performances. It contemplates our role within the living world and explores perception, language, and emotion both within and beyond the human sphere. Ignited by the rising urge to wake up from a millennia-long sleep, Sensing Nature from Within wishes to inspire a rethinking of our ourselves as sensuous beings within a more-than-human world.
