The Kunstverein Bielefeld is delighted to present the group exhibition
The Equality of Possibility, featuring the work of Bady Dalloul, Flint
Jamison, Lia Perjovschi, Lorenza Longhi, Ramaya Tegegne, and Rindon
Johnson. The exhibition frames questions of political equality in terms
of aesthetic thought. It takes equality not to be a given, but rather a
preconditioning act, one which does not refer to individual capacities,
whether natural or socially or culturally acquired. Going back to the
early Kunstvereine (art associations) of the nineteenth century, we
find that they too followed the ideal of making art public and thus
accessible to everyone. In the present day, questioning our own
structures of representation – and the associated conditions of
accessibility – remains a highly relevant task.
The exhibition is based on a number of questions, which we cordially
invite you to reflect on with us. How can we conceive of different
forms of equality from the perspective of art? In what ways can we
critically question the prevailing mechanisms of the art field? What
does this specifically mean for artistic production in today’s
circumstances? What role do spectators have in all of this?
The Equality of Possibility features an extensive program of
accompanying events, including artists’ talks, lectures, and workshops
held in cooperation with Bielefeld University and the Bethel Theater
Workshop. We also offer inclusive tours particularly aimed at people
with visual impairments.
