Until 28 August 2011
Amid global crisis, contemporary art finds itself confronted by its own theoretical and practical dissolution within a thoroughly debunked reality. As the Tao te Ching advises the mysterious protagonist of Dystopia, the exhibition, the point is to “neither beat the pot and sing, nor loudly bewail the approach of death.” Between nihilism and hedonism lie pathways to failure, resistance and survival.
