possibilities on paper is a conceptual exhibition that does not show works in the classic sense of authorship. The exhibition presents a series of black and white copies that have been designed and stated by different personalities from various areas of society.
For this purpose, the curator asked artists, gallerists, economists, entrepreneurs, politicians, journalists, scientists and curators, among others, for contributions and ideas that reflect the current situation resulting from the corona pandemic. The sheets are distributed in stacks in the gallery space and offered to take away. Responses to the project or to individual contributions are welcome and collected.
possibilities on paper transforms the gallery space into a space of thought and gathers statements, points of view, oscillating ideas, ideals, questions of faith, pragmatic formulations, knowledge or hopes for the present. Voices from various social areas express themselves about one or their now. The question of the exhibition aims at a situated or historical now. What can be a present life model? Where is it anachronistic? What is a present now and what can the term contemporary do? The question is not new, time is.
The exhibition can be understood as a gesture of pause in the largest incision since the end of the Second World War. In this exhibition experiment, the curator wants to consider the seriousness, but also the resulting hopes. It invites you to take a step aside in times of communicative sprints, to take a deep breath and to see the now by looking inwards. Until the opening, the curator does not know which image is going to be created by these views.
The project is based on the generosity and will of the authors and is not commercial.
