Marres- Center for Contemporary Culture proudly announces the fifth edition of the exhibition Marres Currents, curated by Evelyn Simons and Isabel Van Bos.
In this day and age of virtual communication with its echo chambers and filter bubbles, political propaganda, the construction and transmission of myths, whitewashing, etc., artists raise questions regarding our methods to transmit knowledge, and re-examine the tools we have to communicate with one another. This exhibition therefore departs from ideas related to Knowledge Commons, the philosophy pursuing a society in which information can be collectively owned, shared and managed as opposed to the privatisation of knowledge. How can collective knowledge generate collective consciousness?
(Simons/ Van Bos)
