Based upon Hannah Arendt’s 1961 seminal oeuvre Between Past and Future, this exhibition aims at reconsidering “eight exercises in political thought”: tradition and the modern age, the concept of history, what is authority, what is freedom, the crisis in education, the crisis in culture, truth and politics, and, last but not least, the conquest of space. Arendt’s analysis of the perplexing crises modern society faces provides guidelines to understand today’s world.

With Eleanor Antin, Thomas Bayrle, Renate Bertlmann, Aleksandra Domanović, Lili Dujourie, Bracha L. Ettinger, Veronique Filozof, Peter Kennard, Vivienne Koorland, Laima Leyton, Everlyn Nicodemus, Pamela Rosenkranz, Allan Sekula, Lerato Shadi, Jo Spence, Ulay, Ai Weiwei, and others…
