While in the Renaissance or Romanticism the fragment was conceived of as a vestige of a former whole or of something that was yet to be completed, since the 20th century it has stood as a symbol for a world that is always unfinished. Through paintings, sculptures, photographs and video installations by artists such as Joseph Beuys, Anish Kapoor, William Kentridge, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Cy Twombly and Andy Warhol, the presentation Time for Fragments looks into the meaning of this tendency.
