An exhibition by 

Akademie Schloss Solitude in cooperation with 
WÃrttembergischer
Kunstverein 

 Â 

In the framework of 

20 Years Akademie Schloss Solitude! / Design of the 
(In-)Human 


The project 





 

From April 30 to August 1, 2010 the WÃrttembergischer
Kunstverein will be showing, together with the Akademie Schloss 
Solitude, the exhibition Territories of the 
In/Human in celebration of the
twenty-year anniversary of the Akademieâs founding. 

 Â 

With this exhibition, the Kunstverein is following this
yearâs thematic focus at the Akademie Schloss Solitude, namely, the 
question as
to how pervasive concepts of the human and inhuman have become.
 



The
 twenty-year history of the Akademie Schloss Solitude
coincides with a series of far-reaching political, social, economic, and
cultural upheavals: from the disintegration of the communist and 
socialist
states, to the establishment of new borders and enemy stereotypes, to
significant changes in structures of information and communication.
 

 Â 

While in the early nineteen-nineties the triumphant
success of Western models of democracy and free market economy were 
still being
celebrated, it soon became evident that its promises of never-ending 
peace and
prosperity for all were not going to prove sustainable: in face of wars 
such as
those in former Yugoslavia, Africa, Afghanistan, or Iraq; an ever 
expanding
divide between wealth and poverty; the scramble for natural resources 
like
water, oil, and gas; or the bursting of diverse economic bubbles, not 
least in
the context of the most recent collapse of the financial and real-estate
markets. The accelerated and apparently boundless mobility of people, 
goods,
information, or capital flowsâas has been conjured in the scope of 
rhetorics of
progress within the age of globalizationâgoes hand in hand with those 
fatal
acts of inclusion and exclusion to which nearly half a million people 
have
fallen prey over the past two decades on trails of migration. âIf in the
 system
of the nation-state,ââ writes G i orgio 
Agamben, âthe refugee
represents such a disquieting element, it is above all because by 
breaking up
the identity between man and citizen, between nativity and nationality, 
the
refugee throws into crisis the original fiction of sovereignty.â
 

 Â 

It is against this backdrop that the exhibition of the
Kunstverein sets out to explore questions pertaining to concepts of the 
human
and inhuman. Being shown are works from around thirty Solitude 
scholarship
recipients, both current and formerâworks created between the 
nineteen-nineties
and today. 

 Â 

Taking a central role here is an exploration of spatial
and societal acts of inclusion and exclusion that have proven inherent 
to the
concept of the modern man. The dichotomies of human and inhuman, subject
 and
object, norm and deviation, guilt and innocence are critically 
questioned with
similar intensity as are the open and hidden structures of violence 
within the
struggle to secure a position within a shifting world order. Continuing 
along
these lines is an exhibition focus on patterns of angst and control, on
concepts of functionality or on hierarchical patternsâincluding how 
these are
inscribed in the territories of the private and the public. 

 Â 

The objective of the exhibition does notâand cannot
feasiblyâinclude an exhaustive negotiation of the question as to how 
pervasive
concepts of the human and inhuman have become. It moreover attempts to 
treat
selected aspects of this complex and sweeping radius of problematic 
issues.  

 Â 

The exhibition will be accompanied by a comprehensive lecture and film program.

In
 the fall of 2010 a performance series will be held at 
the WÃrttembergischer
Kunstverein, likewise commemorating twenty years of the Akademie Schloss
Solitude.
