When, in 1915, Malevich presented a completely black square, this did not herald the end of art; on the contrary. He stated: "It is from nothing, into nothing, that the true movement of existence starts." Visitors to Scotomata will discover this Russian suprematist's continued influence. Now that image production has gone completely haywire due to digitisation, contemporary artists often decide to radically slow down the looking process. Maximum alertness for a minimum of stimuli.
