The exhibition encompasses a wide range of exemplary positions. Based on very different constructions of reality on the subject of everyday life:
It spans the exaggeration of the sensually perceptible everyday life in Karin Kneffel's paintings, globes from the series "Worldprocessor" (1988-2005) by Ingo Günther that visualize global themes, live images from the private sphere in "Day part" (2008) by Chris Newman, up to playing with the apparent reliability and veracity of one's own observation in the sculptures by Mai-Thu Perret or Iris Kettner. Whether the solidarity with the marginalized in society in the photographs "Behind the Block" by Tobias Zielony or the very concrete awareness of political reality in the photographs of the series "Protesting the US War in Iraq" (2006/07) by Judith Joy Ross and the video "Casio, Seiko, Sheraton, Toyota, Mars" (2004/05) by Sean Snyder - there are always tense connections between art and reality that allow the viewer to draw the line between the everyday and the absurd, between unfamiliar approaches to experience familiar and accustomed ways of seeing the unknown for oneself.
