Think & Feel! Speak & Act!
- ICAT HFBK Hamburg
What does it mean to produce art in times of multiple crises? How can visions for the future be created in the face of drastic geopolitical, ecological and social crises? And how can we use art to imagine new forms of exchange and togetherness? These questions are the focus of the exhibition THINK & FEEL! SPEAK & ACT!, which is a result of an open call.
On display are works by ten international Master's students from the HFBK who question body politics and modes of representation, examine the appearance of public space, scrutinise neoliberal processes and the production of value, test new forms of collectivity, break up Western-centric perspectives or deal with the resistive potential of fiction. The artists take a critical look at the world that surrounds them and show that not only the personal is political, but the political is highly personal.
The exhibition is curated by Nadine Droste. She is a curator and part of the artistic team of La Salle de bains in Lyon. From 2019-23 she was director of the Kunstverein in Bielefeld. The exhibition's assistant curator is Nikoloz Mamatsashvili.
