Brodmann Area 17 – who is Brodmann?
The exhibition is a tribute to Korbinian Brodmann, considered by many, the first public artist in history.
Brodmann, an offspring of a bourgeois family had rough childhood years. His father, a famous neurosurgeon of the time, wished to see his son continuing his work. Young Korbinian had already expressed his artistic concerns and did not accept to walk on his fathers steps. At the age of 21, he left his home to pursue his dream in the lonely fields of Switzerland. There, contemplating the elements of nature, he found his way to art. He started by mapping the scenery while having a pic-nic. Having mapped all of Switzerland, Brodmann understood that his art had to become more personal. While trying to curve a tag on a tree, he slipped on frozen ice and hit his head on a big rock.
Some time later, Brodmann wil realise that the accident took place in a parallel universe where Korbinian was re-born as his father.After recovering from the accident, Brodmann decided to combine his excellent mapping skills with his fathers scientific knowledge, in order to create a map of the biggest country of the world, the brain.
