Exhibition within my residency @ Künstlerhaus of the city of Munich Villa Waldberta May-July 2021
With the group exhibition “unknowing now,” Villa Waldberta presents the work of participants in the residency program living and working together in the Feldafing Artist House this summer: Duane Corpis, Dragoș Hanciu, Timo Herbst, LEE Dong-Hwan, Eitan Rieger and Kinga Tóth. The pieces exhibited in “unknowing now” understand thepresent as part of an ongoing dialogue with both various traces of the past and with creative imaginaries of the future. Humanity exists in a “temporal bubble,” which we usually accept without question due to our
unmediated immersion in our own current moment. In this exhibition, the artists challenge this present-oriented point of view. Complementary yet different social, political, and aesthetic tensions are addressed in “unknowing now” (for example, the struggles for a democratic public, the feminist rethinking of religious rituals, and the interaction of new and old technologies) to raise the question of how the Now is imprinted by the past, and how we could dismantle this lasting impression with a more open perspective in order to create something new, which can expand beyond what we take for granted as the limits of our own Now.
