Psyche and Politics

Jim Shaw
Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Germany
16 March - 16 June, 2019

To a hitherto unknown extent, social and political processes are now touching upon the most intimate spheres of human beings. New structures of communication carry messages and images into our inner worlds, unfiltered and at any moment. This means - and so runs the exhibition's hypothesis - that the psyche is becoming more and more an arena of the political.

The exhibition at Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden examines processes and poses the question of how these experiences, which are so different all across the globe, can be made visible through art. The exhibition presents the positions of ten international artists, among them Jim Shaw, who deal with the perception of the self and its transformation into the external world.
