Artists have always had the power to conceive alternative ways of thinking, imagining and perceiving and, in so doing, they are able to speak directly or indirectly to the challenges that we face as a society. Seemingly more than ever in recent times, facing situations out of our control has become part of a profoundly collective experience. The group exhibition Situation 1 und andere (Eng. Situation 1 and others) presents eleven artistic positions (created by 14 artists) from the three-country region; through painting, installation, sculpture, video, and drawing, it traces charged encounters, some marked by confusion, insecurity, loss, and uncertainty.
