About dehumanization as degradation of human life
Kunstverein in Hamburg presents the artists project:
Not fully human, not human at all.
Not Fully Human, Not Human at All takes its name from Donna Haraway’s essay “Ecce Homo, Ain’t (Ar’n’t) I a Woman, and Inappropriate/d Others”, a text which challenges the “universal” claims of Enlightenment Humanism in order to propose conditions of what she calls “non-generic” collective humanity. The artists in this exhibition set out from similar positions as both Haraway in order to propose new ways of thinking through our collective states of humanity.
Participating artists with performances, Vieos, installation and discussions are: Saddie Choua, Valentina Desideri , Denise Ferreira da Silva , Arely Amaut, Nilbar Güreş, Ibro Hasanović, Jelena Jureša, Doruntina Kastrati, Kaltrina Krasniqi, Pedro Neves Marques, Christian Nyampeta, Daniela Ortiz, Monira Al Qadiri, Lala Raščić and Kengné Téguia
This new exhibition, symposium and publication focuses on Europe as a geographic and conceptual framework, while reflecting on the dehumanization that characterizes many of the activities that humans have been doing in the name of “humanity” within its borders. It follows up on a three year project initiated by KADIST and curated by Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez that appeared in three different European localities—Kosovo, Portugal, and Belgium—with institutional partners in these contexts.
Curators: Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez, Bettina Steinbrügge
The exhibition is kindly supported by the Ministry of Culture and Media of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, German Federal Cultural Foundation.
