Curated by Alenka Gregorič und Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein

The group exhibition curated by Alenka Gregorič und Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein, following an initial concept by Tanja Prušnik focuses on the emancipatory potential of art, enabling a platform for the practice of solidarity, alongside the possibilities and imponderabilities that are associated with it. The exhibition aims to initiate a new grammar for a diversity orientated “groundless solidarity“. Reflective on the conditions under which an individual gesture, can transform into a collective force, whilst interrupting a seemingly normal course of action, and thus becomes an event itself.

Sixteen polyphonic, critical, constructive, and imaginative artistic voices, draft a feminist vocabulary with strategies, forms of action, and utopian ventures helping to rethink collective action, cooperation, solidarity, and shared existences.
