At a time when society seems to have given up believing in facts, relying on a sense of “blind faith” instead, the body and mind binary has gained considerable importance in contemporary art.

Engaging the visceral and the cognitive, the exhibition assembles around 25 international artists who deploy a variety of media in order to interrogate logics of truth, authenticity, opinion, and faith:
Ed Atkins, Kader Attia, Olga Balema, Melanie Bonajo, Mariechen Danz, Cécile B. Evans, Andrea Éva Győri, Benedikt Hipp, Nicholas Hlobo, Marguerite Humeau, KAYA (Kerstin Brätsch and Debo Eilers), Hanne Lippard, Wangechi Mutu, Otobong Nkanga, Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, Jon Rafman, Mary Reid Kelley, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Raphael Sbrzesny, Jeremy Shaw, Teresa Solar Abboud, Jol Thomson, and David Zink Yi.

The exhibition will be combined with an extensive program of live events, performances and talks, as well as accompanied by a publication.

Curated by Julienne Lorz, Daniel Milnes, and Anna Schneider.

Haus der Kunst is a non-collecting public museum and a key global center for contemporary art. It is dedicated to the exploration of the diverse histories of contemporary art based on a foundation of focused exhibitions, research, and education.

Through its programs, Haus der Kunst affirms and acknowledges that the trajectories of contemporary art are global, multifocal, polysemic, and unbounded by cartographic, conceptual, and cultural limits.

Haus der Kunst sharpens this perspective of contemporary art by implicating many viewpoints, deploying multiple tools, and developing a critical context for the examination, articulation, illumination, and transmission of the historical dimension of contemporaneity. Haus der Kunst achieves this through a culturally relevant interdisciplinary program of the highest artistic merit.
