An Entirely New Word
Artists: Joshua Nierodzinski, Željka Blakšić, Sara Shaoul, Enrico Floriddia
Curator: Rashmi Viswanathan
Four artists explore the dynamics of collectivity and futures as they might exist in our shared imagination, each with their own approach. They offer a multi-perspectival view of the ways we understand our relations to each other and the media structures that amplify, stifle, and liberate our speech. In media explorations rooted in collective practices, the field of participation extends well beyond the walls of the exhibition space. Some look backward, at the languages and media forms that inform our understanding of history. Others, in turn, look forward, at how language might potentially speak a new future. From different perspectives, these artists focus on the most simple of ideas – collective storytelling as a momentary act of liberation.
