Does the state take care of us? Society’s institutions are machines of solitude. When the psychosocial environment makes the individuals angry and sorrowful, the bio-power treats their discomfort chemically. If it is so that medication improves the being, why is more and more people becoming even more sick? What happens to the inner ecology when the room for the humane diminishes? This is an exhibition that wants to trigger creative thoughts as healing process towards those who feel uncomprehend and broken. An observation of the psychiatric system as a form of power, from a sustainable perspective, with the purpose to raise awareness and open a discussion on a possible path towards liberation, beyond pathologizing and medicating human experiences.
Opening: Saturday 5 October, 1–4pm
Conversation: Thursday 24 Oktober, 6–8 pm.
