Art is concrete. And so is truth?
21% theatre legend
“Art is concrete. And so is truth?” confronts the supposedly real world, with its supposedly real politics, with the reality of artistic representations – in the words of Godard: “Art is not the reflection of reality, it is the reality of this reflection.”
In seven successive solo presentations during the course of the exhibition, photographic images will be related to different fields of action, that transcend as much as constitute the image: research, stories, actions, media regimes, the public space, political agitation. The artists are invited to use part of the exhibition rooms for their own works, but also for readings, concerts, performances and lectures. This will create a changing hypothetical space with both concrete and binding interventions in the regime of allocating meaning between art, politics and everyday life.
