The Other Side

Borderlands in contemporary Irish art


Ausstellung


Design:Florida

Design:Florida

The exhibition "The Other Side" uses contemporary Irish positions to focus on the personal, geopolitical and cultural effects of borders and social division. Through events such as the independence of the Republic of Ireland, the so-called "troubles" in Northern Ireland and the current Brexit discussions, the border has repeatedly become the central point of conflict on the island.

A total of six internationally renowned artists from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland deal with this theme and the shadows of the past and put it on a new stage. Research into the physical, social and imaginary dimensions of borders, as well as into questions of territorial violence, conflict and identity, was processed by the artists in video installations, sculptures, photographs and collages.

"The Other Side" offers new insights into the past and present of a divided island and opens the view to other divided countries and those that no longer exist. The critical, intimate and at times humorous positions invite visitors* to reexamine social belonging and political demarcation.

Curated by Anne Mager

Artists: Enda Bowe, Willie Doherty, Seán Hillen, Jesse Jones, Dragana Jurišić and Kathy Prendergast
