Guided tour of the "When gesture becomes event" exhibition
Sixteen polyphonic, critical, constructive and imaginative voices draw up a feminist vocabulary spanning across strategies, forms of action and utopian endeavours to help rethink collective action, co-operation, solidarity and shared existences.
Artists presented at the exhibition: Anna Artaker, Nika Autor, Renate Bertlmann, Katharina Cibulka, Lana Čmajčanin, Magdalena Frey, Anna Jermolaewa, Roberta Lima, Polonca Lovšin, Dorit Margreiter, Ursula Mayer, Marjetica Potrč, Constanze Ruhm, Maruša Sagadin, Maja Smrekar, The Golden Pixel Cooperative.
The group show When Gesture Becomes Event was developed in close dialogue with the artists, with whom we reflected on the basic considerations of solidarity as social support between humans, other living beings and the environment. Following the outbreak of the Coronavirus disease pandemic, at the time of the exhibition’s conception, we also intensified our reflection on solidarity between artists, curators, other cultural workers and cultural institutions. The leitmotif underpinning “When Gesture Becomes Event” focuses on the emancipatory potential of art as a platform for the practice of solidarity, along with the accompanying gestures, possibilities and imponderabilities associated with it.
You are cordially invited to join us for a guided tour of the exhibition with curator Alenka Gregorič.
