Exhibition curated by Sandra Mann.
Through a diverse collection of artworks from international, established and early career artists this exhibition offers a broad range of responses to the concept of 'Macht' or 'Power'. These viewpoints are reflected in a purposely equal, if uncommon, ratio of ten female and ten male artists. In German, the word 'Macht' or 'Power' is often viewed in a negative context, associated more with its opposites: powerlessness, helplessness or impotence. In other languages, US English for example, the term has more positive associations: liberation, ambition, self-determination. However, in the diverse and complex artworks in the exhibition we open up alternate, perhaps surprising views to our local understanding of 'Macht'. !
The exhibition includes a variety of artforms such as painting, photography, collage, drawing, sculpture, print and video. From young upcoming artists to participants of the Venice Biennale. A catalog will be published.
