• “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)
