Among the exhibits on tap are “Unlimited 2016,” a large-scale art show featuring the likes of Mithu Sen’s “MUO (Museum of Unbelonging),” a display cabinet filled with everyday objects, each individually named and collected by the artist since childhood; “Parcours,” an interactive exhibit in the city’s historical center, including locales like the cathedral, an underground tunnel and the Rhine River; and film screenings including Omer Fast’s Continuity and Timothy Marrinan and Richard Dewey’s Burden.
