"Painting 2.0: Expression in the Information Age" is the first exhibition to tell the story of painting’s adaptation, absorption and transformation of information technologies in Western Europe and the United States since the 1960s. Its historical starting point in Pop Art and Nouveau Réalisme’s programmatic appropriation and re-contextualization of commercial imagery precedes the advent of digitalization and the Internet by some thirty years. Painting’s capacity to absorb and transform other media became explicit at the same moment as its legitimacy was fundamentally challenged by cultural forms of mediation which Guy Debord theorizes in his influential critique as ‘The Society of the Spectacle’ (1967).
