CURATORS: Andrea Domesle, Basel, CH | Frank Eckhardt, Dresden
Around one hundred years ago as one after the other and occurring simultaneously, different sorts of upheavals in many countries and regions in Europe and in the Middle East began to take place1, the First World War might have been ending, but at the same time a phase of violent confrontations began in multiple places for the assertion  of always differing or antagonistic concepts of the future, whose influences or aftermath we can sense more distinctly and sensitively than this was possible but a few years ago.
How do artists today reflect about the effects of such events upon today’s and the previous society and within this  also indirectly upon contemporary art?
