The exhibition pays tribute to the
post factual world that crystalized itself in 2016. This multi-layered, complex
and sometimes only subjective view on the world that feeds itself with bits and
pieces of information from the Internet. The new media, with its myriad screens
and streams, makes reality so fragmented it becomes ungraspable, pushing us
towards, or allowing us to flee, into virtual realities and fantasies. The
flight into techno-fantasies is intertwined with economic and social
uncertainty. The abuse of facts and the decline of the authorities on facts
have revealed how utterly fragile and easily manipulated facts can be and how
virtually all authoritative information sources need to be challenged.
“Its blueness soothes the sharp burn
in your eyes” will show artists and their multiple ways of creating or offering
alternative views of our realities, point out how realities are constructed and
can be obstructed or manipulated. The works in this exhibition will bring the
viewer to a halt to rearrange his view, think critically about our perception
and start to construct their own standpoint.
I: project space will incubate Loris
at Postdamer Straße as a space that functions as hybrid between different
worlds, different realities. The Beijing-based space has functioned as a
connecting space between different cultures, multiple perspectives on art and
initiator for exchange of different ideas since 2014. Part of the practice is
to enter a discourse and create interruptions to start new dialogue independent
from the already existing one.
