This second group exhibition, entitled "Everyday Ideologies", follows on from a successful project from 2008. After “everyday life”, the subtitle of the current exhibition is “time lapses, paths of life”.
While the first part of the exhibition was concerned with determining the location and space, the focus is now on dealing with time. Again it is about works of art that relate to reality - statements about the present. In the spectrum of the 18 participating artists and their thematic themes, the exhibition draws connections to almost all continents, to the centres and to the edges of attention. Linked to the changing times and the sensitivity of artistic approach, the works in the exhibition can also be seen as blueprints of life. They are about memory, loss, transformation, illusion, utopia or everyday life, for example. This is not meant to be illustrative, but as an emotional, perhaps critical and moral reflection parallel to the perceived reality or simply as a formulation of the personal sense of time of our day.
