Momentarily Learning from Mega-Events

December 4, 2011 - 6:00pm to June 4, 2012 - 6:00pm


“Momentarily Learning from Mega-Events” is an exhibition that explores priority versus urgency in art production. Questions on the position of artists and their reconditioned processes are contemplated in relation to changes in the social and political contexts. The artistic production presents itself as document on the affect of the oscillating political environment in 2011.
