“It is not the religious, ritual or explanatory nature of a narrative that makes it a myth, but rather the fact that it belongs to a time when the world was different from it is today” – Franz Boas, 1916
Confronted with every imaginable earthly possibility to fill our time, we seem more and more doomed to a life with this earth. Our being is not only forcing a new escape on the surface, away from realism; an old primal feeling is growing within us. Towards forgotten or newly constructed practices and rites, mystical narratives that are increasingly lost to us in the clearly defined information structures of contemporary civilization. Astrology is no longer just for eso-cracks who read their horoscope in the Gala. Yoga and the will for inner enlightenment are presented to the Western world as fully explored products. The works in this exhibition thus mix the views of ‘modern’ living with the longing to see the world through a higher consciousness.
