Dream Machines, curated by Daniel Birnbaum and Massimiliano Gioni, is a small exhibition that explores the impact of technology on human imagination. The emergence of a new medium always gives rise to new possibilities for art, and each epoch has its key artists in whose creations a novel encounter between technology and creativity crystalize. Dream Machines presents a number of momentous works, from Ulf Linde’s reinterpretation of Marcel Duchamp’s Coffee Mill (1911)–described by André Breton as an infernal machine–to a selection of recent experiments exploring virtual spheres. Installed in the cavernous spaces of the Slaughterhouse in Hydra and in its surroundings, this boîte-en-valise of an exhibition becomes itself a bachelor machine, with works caught in an endless mechanic ballet.
