The artists represented in the “Human” exhibition are interested in observing and analysing the subject, its associated community, and superordinate social constructions. The concern is an engagement with identity or personality structure whether in connection with ethnic and geographical affiliation, class, culture, history, or prescribed role images. On the one hand, the point of departure is society and its effects and influences on the lives and personalities of its members. On the other, there are the artists with their individual biographies who examine their direct surroundings, usually with an empathetic approach and in the process also address their own fears, vulnerabilities, and insecurities as well as the need for closeness and happiness. At times intimate glimpses into private aspects of life, personal histories, memorial work memory/reminiscence, and life situations are made possible. Other artists offer unusual ways of seeing reality through humorous or bizarre narratives as well as staged performances or role games that are situated between authenticity and fiction. These underline the absurdity of everyday life and thus of human existence.
