“You have to go and to come back with the ‘things’ if your moves are not to be wasted. But the ,things‘ have to be able to withstand the return trip without withering away. Further requirements: the ,things‘ you gathered and displaced have to be presentable all at once to those you want to convince and who did not go there. In sum, you have to invent objects which have the properties of being mobile but also immutable, presentable, readable and combinable with one another.”
Bruno Latour

“We like lists because we don’t want to die.”
Umberto Eco

Bruno Latour introduced the notion of the “Immutable mobile” in order to highlight and discuss the often overlooked, but yet central role of image production in the field of science. Diagrams, technical drawings as well as lists have the capability to affect beyond the realm of language-based arguments, which has historically led to paradigm shifts in the history of science. The exhibition Immutable Mobiles engages with these types of image production in the field of Fine Art. Since Marcel Duchamps interest in diagrams and technical drawings, deployed in conjunction with his development of “beauty of precision”, that conceptually enabled him to represent complex processes and relationships, artists have increasingly worked with these specific forms of representation. Whether they critically employ the formal banality of statistical representations or develop their own universes of modeling, the relationship between images and their role in scientific discourses becomes even more important when it emerges as evidence in contemporary media. Immutable Mobiles presents different artistic approaches and strategies focusing on representational conventions from the world of science.
