Benedikt Hipp
Blind Faith. Between the Visceral and the Cognitive in Contemporary Art

2 March - 19 August 2018
Group exhibition

Haus der Kunst, Munich, Germany

Artist Page: 

At a time when society seems to have given up believing in facts, relying on a sense of “blind faith” instead, the body and mind binary has gained considerable importance in contemporary art.

Engaging the visceral and the cognitive, the exhibition assembles around 25 international artists who deploy a variety of media in order to interrogate logics of truth, authenticity, opinion, and faith:
Ed Atkins, Kader Attia, Olga Balema, Melanie Bonajo, Mariechen Danz, Cécile B. Evans, Andrea Éva Győri, Benedikt Hipp, Nicholas Hlobo, Marguerite Humeau, KAYA (Kerstin Brätsch and Debo Eilers), Hanne Lippard, Wangechi Mutu, Otobong Nkanga, Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, Jon Rafman, Mary Reid Kelley, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Raphael Sbrzesny, Jeremy Shaw, Teresa Solar Abboud, Jol Thomson, and David Zink Yi.

The exhibition will be combined with an extensive program of live events, performances and talks, as well as accompanied by a publication.

Curated by Julienne Lorz, Daniel Milnes, and Anna Schneider
