Blind Faith: Between the Visceral and the Cognitive in Contemporary Art is the new exhibition at Haus der Kunst.
Connecting the concepts of cognitive and visceral, and playing with ideas like religion, faith, veracity, and opinion, the exhibition shows the works of 25 artists:
Ed Atkins, Kader Attia, Olga Balema, Melanie Bonajo, Mariechen Danz, Cécile B. Evans, Andrea Éva Győri, Benedikt Hipp, Nicholas Hlobo, Marguerite Humeau, KAYA (Kerstin Brätsch and Debo Eilers), Hanne Lippard, Wangechi Mutu, Otobong Nkanga, Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, Jon Rafman, Mary Reid Kelley, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Raphael Sbrzesny, Jeremy Shaw, Teresa Solar Abboud, Jol Thomson, and David Zink Yi.
We live in the era where fake news have the power to convince society of facts that never occurred. Lack of critical thinking? Overload of information? These and other questions will be raised at this exhibition.
You can visit the exhibition Blind Faith at Haus der Kunst until 19th of August 2018. More information at the Haus der Kunst website.
