The globalized world seems at once transparent and opaque. The exhibition project “Transparencies” examined the cultural facets and atmospheres of these (non-)transparencies. The two-part, joint exhibition project in Bielefeld and Nuremberg was dedicated to developments in “transparent society,” asking how these are reflected in the current work by contemporary artists. The paradigm of transparency and the ambivalence of the term was addressed by participating artists in multiple, diverse ways. This book documents both exhibitions and outlines all of the contributions to this substantial project. Conceptually designed by Metahaven, it contains artistic statements and scientific essays that encourage an ongoing discussion of the subject.
