18 - 22 September, 2019

In September 2019, about fifteen artists from Los Angeles will be invited to exhibit at the former Conservatory of music and dramatic art conservatory of Sète. The projects exhibited will be inspired by the city as much as by their meetings with artists from Sète that they met in February 2019 in LA. Similar to LA, there will be an art exhibition at the MIAM (the Museum created by Herve di Rosa) along with performances and concerts in the regional center of contemporary art, the Paul Valéry museum, and the Theatre of the Sea.

Psyche and Politics is an exhibition at Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden that examines processes and poses the question of how social and political 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.

Hate Speech: Aggression and Intimacy presents international positions in contemporary art that address forms of ever more aggressive communication and the effects of social media, as well as their media-related facets. The exhibition features various international artists,  including Jim Shaw, and takes as its point of departure the alarming leanings of this development toward what is often much-too-direct speech.
