All That We Have in Common

21/12/ 2019 - 02/03/ 2020


“All That We Have in Common” is a collective work, that emerges at times of uncertainty in the capitalist system, and through analysis of specific works of art and practices, aims to strip away the precarious socially/critically constructed discourse and its manifestations.

Through its authoritarian policies, capitalism creates a world in which the structures of power are adamantly on the side of the rich, oppressing the lives of the underprivileged and marginalized. The neoliberal culture is abundant in the language of innovations and novelties with tendencies to produce capital, and yet the culture has never been more degraded.

If the general uncertainty – reflected in the work, education, popular culture and individual and collective psychology of contemporary society – generates conservatism in the culture, then the following questions are relevant: “Which forms of action and organization may contribute to making art both exciting and useful again? Should art become a supplement of thlitics, in terms that politics may benefit from incorporating art-specific elements, or should we politicize art? Are there possible ways of returning modernity to social forms of action and association and what are the ways in which art and culture can contribute in this?”
