OTHER SPACES

Group show - Berlin

How does a space influence our attitude and perception, and how does it participate in the plurality of our identity? For this exhibition, we invited artists to explore the concept of "Other Spaces" that exist around us. Near the streets and landscapes that we know and see every day, there also exist “heterotopias” that societies and cultures tend to produce, such as cinemas, museums, libraries, clubs, train stations or offices - a plurality of parallel realities, each modulating our behaviour in written and unwritten ways.

By delving into those different microcosms, the exhibition intends to explore the characteristics that belong to a specific space, through which we investigate the contrast between what is familiar and what is the other, what is real and unreal.

The theme is inspired by Michel Foucault’s concept of ‘Other Spaces’, which aim was to explore “the different modes by which, in our culture, human beings are made subjects". As the French philosopher stated in 1967, “We are in the epoch of simultaneity: we are in the epoch of juxtaposition, the epoch of the near and far, of the side-by-side, of the dispersed.”​
