Blind Faith: Between the Visceral and the Cognitive in Contemporary Art
Date(s): Mar 2, 2018 – Aug 19, 2018
Location: Haus der Kunst, Prinzregentenstraße 1, 80538 München, Germany
At a time when society seems to have given up believing in facts, relying on a sense of “blind faith” instead, the body and mind binary has gained considerable importance in contemporary art.
Engaging the visceral and the cognitive, the exhibition assembles around 25 international artists who deploy a variety of media in order to interrogate logics of truth, authenticity, opinion, and faith: Ed Atkins, Kader Attia, Olga Balema, Melanie Bonajo, Mariechen Danz, Cécile B. Evans, Andrea Éva Győri, Benedikt Hipp, Nicholas Hlobo, Marguerite Humeau, KAYA (Kerstin Brätsch and Debo Eilers), Hanne Lippard, Wangechi Mutu, Otobong Nkanga, Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, Jon Rafman, Mary Reid Kelley, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Raphael Sbrzesny, Jeremy Shaw, Teresa Solar Abboud, Jol Thomson, and David Zink Yi.Event Site
