The “Moving Sculptures” presentation shows selected sculptures, installations and wall pieces from the collection in which movement plays a special role. The large glass hall of the museum is filled with sounds and movement. Beginning with Jean Tinguely, the past master of kinetic sculpture, and continuing with Pol Bury and the video and media installations of Nam June Paik and Lynn Hershman, the exhibition shows how not just the artwork itself but also how the observer begins to be overcome with motion. All pieces have in common that they question the standard separation between observers and artworks, assuming active observers that become a part of the works at different levels, either spatially as in the works of Netzhammer and Mik, or via their own activities.

Loans from renowned collections can also be seen, such as the so-called Tischtänzer (Dancing On Tables), a sound sculpture by Stephan von Huene from the Nationalgalerie im Hamburger Bahnhof, Staatliche Museen Preußischer Kulturbesitz, Berlin.
