What You’ll See: An animated homage to The Ascent of Man, Jacob Bronowski’s epic 1973 BBC documentary about human development. The new video uses handmade models, in-studio detritus, and occasionally vermin, presenting a strange, darker, totally surreal picture of humanity. It was first shown at On Stellar Rays last fall; MoMA P.S. 1 will re-create that exhibition, which also included a fish tank containing Hartung’s own pet koi. He’ll be stopping by regularly to feed them.
