The loop is omnipresent-whether in music and video art, or hotel lobbies and living rooms, where flickering flames or aquariums with ceaselessly darting fish run continually on monitors. At the same time, the self-contained circuit, the endless loop, has been a theme in the fields of cultural history, alchemy, religion, and philosophy since classical antiquity, at the latest. With Never Ending Stories, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg presents the first extensive examination of the loop phenomenon in art, film, architecture, music, literature, and cultural history, taking a comprehensive interdisciplinary look at the subject as regards time and place as well as form and content.?The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive scholarly catalogue edited by Ralf Beil, which will shed light on this multifaceted theme, examining it from the aspects of science, literature, and creativity. Featuring thirteen essays, numerous original sources, and more than three hundred illustrations, this catalogue is a foundational work that revolves persistently around its theme, constantly opening up new and surprising perspectives and insights.With works by:Adel Abdessemed, Abramovic/Ulay, Francis Alys, Robert Barta, Thomas Bayrle, Max Beckmann, Joseph Beuys, Michel Blazy, Etienne-Louis Boullee, Marcel Broodthaers, Julio Cortazar, Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp, Thomas A.
