Summer shows tend to be light-hearted and experimental, and this one is no different. Featuring the works of five international artists, the exhibition seeks to examine how the concept of “escapism” can be helpful in describing new artistic strategies. A widespread belief in art’s utility for improving the world has led to a fixation on current events that obscures alternative qualities, origins, and methods. Against this background, escapism is not merely an escape from reality, but rather a maneuver of evasion and expansion, a form of disobedience and resilience. Elements from science and science fiction, along with playful recursions, pop and trash, are employed to create joyful openings—tunnels to an outer world that goes beyond the sometimes grim logic of day-to-day life, hinting at new possibilities for action.
