In The Sovereign Forest, artist and film maker Amar Kanwar tells a story of exploitation and its consequences. Assisted by poetry and through films, texts, photographs, objects and an installation, Kanwar shows how the story also involves a fight for human rights, for justice and the preserving of knowledge and memory. The exhibition is a result of his collaboration with editor and activist Sudhir Pattnaik, and graphic designer and film maker Sherna Dastur.
Artist and architect Do Ho Suh investigates architecture as both physical and psychological rooms. In the large Passage/s installation, the artist combines passages and corridors from the different homes he has lived in. In translucent textile structures, he gives form to experiences of mobility and change; crossing borders and moving between different mental spaces.
The Long Live Dada exhibition presents paintings, drawings, documents, photography, collages, objects, sound recordings and films from one of the most influential art movements of the 20th century. Dadaism began in 1916 in Zurich as a reaction to the on-going First World War, nationalism, the conservative values of bourgeois society and conventional aesthetic ideals. The exhibition highlights the anti-nationalism of Dadaists, their cross-border networks and desire to question established structures.
