At WhiteSpaceBlackBox the topos of 2017 was «RESISTANCE»:

• The book «Resistance – praise for a phenomen» appeared in early 2017 published by Elster-Verlag, Zurich
• The exhibition « Resistance – Widerstand – Résistance» @ WhiteSpaceBlackBox, May 21 – November 20, 2017, Twelve artistic approaches to the topic of resistance

• Table d‘hôte-Events hosted by contributors of the book and discussions by invited guests. Topic: RESISTANCE – building bridges…

• “Resistance – Widerstand – Résistance” The exhibition @ WhiteSpaceBlackBox, May 21 – November 20, 2017
The concept of the exhibition was based on three different views of resistance in art:
1. Resistant artist’s positions (i.e. against mainstream)
2. Art created under resistant circumstances (i.e. in prison)
3. Art that reflects on our inner resistances (i.e. as visitor of the exhibition)
