Feedforward. The Angel of History addresses the current moment in  
history where the wreckage of political conflict and economic  
inequality is piling up, while globalized forces-largely enabled by  
the "progress" of digital information technologies-inexorably feed us  
forward. The exhibition title references Paul Klee's painting  
"Angelus Novus," which Walter Benjamin famously interpreted as an  
"angel of history" transfixed by the wreckage of the past that is  
piling up in front of him while being propelled backwards into the  
uncertain future by a storm from paradise (progress).
