"Investigations of a Dog – Works from the FACE Collections"
Now at Ellipse Foundation in Cascais, Portugal
May 15 – September 5, 2010

FACE (Foundation of Arts for a Contemporary Europe) is a network of five non-profit art foundations dedicated to the promotion and production of contemporary art.

"Investigations of a Dog" is the group’s first joint organized and curated project and includes works from the collections of the five member institutions. The exhibition draws its title from a 1922 short story by Franz Kafka. Still a puppy, a dog suffers an identity crisis that brings him to question its own nature, and more in general, the canine essence. The themes and strategies that recur in Franz Kafka’s works, have inspired the selection of the works on exhibit.

The exhibition was first presented at Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, Italy (Oct 2009–March 2010). During spring and summer 2010 "Investigations of a Dog" can be visited at Ellipse Foundation in Cascais (20 km outside Lisbon), Portugal, and will later travel on to La maison rouge, Paris; Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall; and DESTE Foundation in Athens.
