Group exhibition

In these bleak times the question of artistic political commitment urgently resurfaced. But, can art alone change the world? Arguably, the answer is no. And yet contemporary artists are not shying away from their deep ambivalence about our socio-economic situation.
Six artists were brought together for EIGEN & ART’s 2017 summer group show —Revolte — to explore the ambivalent and ambiguous relationship between aesthetics and social reality, power and democracy. Through their works, the artists — Birgit Brenner, Stef Heidhues, Christine Hill, Lada Nakonechna, Ricarda Roggan and Jörg Herold — navigate the problem of sustaining a critical moment of aesthetic experience without legitimising mass culture, mass production — or its supposed opposite — art for its own sake. Their shared medium is ambivalence.
