5 June to 30 August 2020
Helen Cammock's film They Call It Idlewild, commissied by Wysing as part of our 30th Anniversary programme, is part of Unprecedented Times, a new group exhibition at Kunsthaus Breganz, Austria.
The exhibition includes works by Helen Cammock, William Kentridge's The Centre for the Less Good Idea, Annette Messager, Rabih Mroué, Markus Schinwald, Marianna Simnett and Ania Soliman.
Unprecedented Times assembles works that have either emerged during the crisis or can be read as a premonition of it. There is much at stake: life together, the political community, the economic situation, ethical imperatives, the ego and existence. In view of the radical experience of a world that is very different to what was previously imaginable, there are attempts to withdraw and search for meaning. Some of the works depict silence and intimacy. Others map social consequences, the danger of political alienation, and the loss of democratic rights.
