We live in a time of open developments, uncertainties and uncertain situations: Identity, politics, human rights, gender, belonging, energy, environment, power....
How do we deal with the emotions, longings, memories, losses and chances that come with it?
What do we lose and what do we gain?
What can we control, how much are we controlled?
What happens when we find, are found, or choose to remain lost?
The exhibition at VEBIKUS Kunsthalle Schaffhausen shows how twenty women artists respond to the issues that are most pressing to them. They do so with subtle, sometimes subversive gestures, with open threats, with questioning of reality, and with a will to rebuild and reconstruct that speaks of the hope of forgetting the established and dreaming of the new.
