The exhibition “Mame-Loshn” is about a language that was shaped in constant motion, without its own territory. Yiddish, the “mother tongue”, is in close relationship with the sphere of everyday life and the human inner world. This puts this phenomenon, as it were, in opposition to the “father tongue” reflecting power relations.
“Monument to the Victims of Biopower” by Daniel Kotowski is a work on the power over the body, which is often an element of a well-thought-out, political strategy aimed at subjecting individuals to the strictest possible control. The artist is particularly interested in biopower and biopolitics as defined by Michel Foucault. He observes reality, noting the manifestations of these as brutal as seemingly imperceptible interferences.
Dellfina Dellert’s “Art of Forgiveness” is an appeal for reconciliation and healing of interpersonal relationships. The words “I’m sorry”, “forgive me”, “thank you”, “I love you” are a reference to the Polynesian Ho’oponopono ritual, which can be translated as repairing, cleansing, or restoring to the best condition.
For safety reasons, we limited the number of people who can participate in the guided tour. We also remind you that face and mouth coverings must be worn throughout the whole event – protective masks are available at the bookstore. We regularly disinfect the surfaces in the gallery and provide hand sanitiser.
