In the midst of a pervasive distrust of reality, the field of the perceptible world is becoming ever more closely tied to subjective experience. «Entangled Events» brings together works by young artists active in Switzerland who examine this changing relationship in order to attempt a reconciliation instead of the progressive isolation. The works created for the exhibition address the wavering of the subject, which is understood to be both an individual and part of a society. In the form of videos, installations and performative moments, the connections and entanglements of individual events are traced. Events, which in the works do not merge into static truths but into a constant process of becoming. The artists document and stage phenomena, demonstrating how singular moments are products of collective relationships while at the same time each collectivity is constituted by singular phenomena. In so doing, the artists draw attention to a shared world and its dynamic configuration.
«Entangled Events» is supported by Pro Helvetia, Schweizer Kulturstiftung, Stiftung Temperatio, Walter- und Ambrosina-Oertli-Stiftung and Kanton Genf.
