Worlds in Contradiction - Areas of Globalisation
The international group exhibition Worlds in Contradiction – Areas of Globalisation is devoted to artists whose work traces these global contexts and impacts in diverse thematic fields.
Global interconnectedness due to the growing movements of travel and migration, and to more and more complex flows of goods and data, raw materials and capital has made often ambivalent changes to the reality of life in very diverse regions of the world.
The exhibition takes particular care to avoid an exclusively eurocentric perspective on the phenomena examined by the artists and aims to elucidate them from multiple standpoints. The political, social and cultural, as well as aesthetic perceptions and critical inquiries into the processes of globalisation, will employ such varied media as film, video, photography and sculpture, taking on the one hand a sociological and documentary approach, and on the other a metaphorical, symbolic and poetic angle.
