Christian Fogarolli: Pneuma
Winner of the Italian council Prize 2019
curated by Giulia Busetti.
We kindly invite you to visit the exhibition PNEUMA by CHRISTIAN FOGAROLLI, winner of the Italian Council Prize 2019, curated by Giulia Busetti, taking place October 10th – November 12th, 2020 at Objekt A | Löwenbräukunst (https://www.lowenbraukunst.ch/home.html), Zürich.
During the one year research-project Fogarolli has undertaken a European-wide journey to various psychiatric institutions, their history and current programs for stabilizing mental health. Exploring the immateriality and intangibility of mental illness, the artist’s research leads to some current questions: Are we still able to start a process of de-stigmatization and reconsideration of mental illness? How do we consider the binary condition that distinguishes normality from deviance? By analysing various geographical and cultural contexts, the exhibition questions the stigma and taboo often connected to the mental health disease.
The exhibition PNEUMA is accompanied by the programme MENTAL HEALTH DAY consisting of 2 Reading Groups, An Awareness Mediation, Performance, Denkkreis (thinking circle) and film screenings to create a dialogue between the shown art works and other experiences of Mental Health.
Due to Covid-19 measurements we will offer a link to join our programme online to most of our events. For an update therefor visit www.dis-order.info or our facebook page 'dis- order' under the designated event.
