If we truly believe in art, then we must think of new ways of making art’s methods of operation applicable to other fields. How to make art a training ground for a particular course of action? What are the current techniques for action, and what can art offer to the new global awakening?
The exhibition, “Experiments in the Techniques of Awakening”, a misquote from Walter Benjamin's Arcades Project, treats non-knowing as a fertile ground for creation. Artists are good at not knowing things and making this state a platform for creative activity. Therefore, in volitile times of transition we turn to art to provide the tools for playful experimentation, reflection and creation for the public to come.
