“Up until the end of the sixteenth-century, resemblance played a constructive role in the knowledge of Western culture. It was resemblance that largely guided exegesis and the interpretation of texts; it was resemblance that organized the play of symbols, made possible knowledge of things visible and invisible, and controlled the art of representing them,” asserts Michel Foucault in The Order of Things. His book serves as the casual interface for the exhibition The Order Of Things. In their installations, Albert Coers, Mia Goyette, and Christine Lemke examine the shifts and interrelationships between various systems of order within language, society, and economic contexts.
