In der Kubatur des Kabinetts


In der Kubatur des Kabinetts zeigt "the unhomely" mit Werken von Borjana Ventzislavova, Pille-Riin Jaik, Nazanin Mehraein, Ana Likar.

curated by Liudmila Kirsanova
The concept of the unhomely was introduced by the critical theorist and postcolonial scholar Homi Bhabha. It describes the in-between temporality of living, in between cultures, languages, and structures of power. It does not mean homeless´, whereas emphasizes on the feeling of estrangement from home and on complication to determine where one´s home is.
This opaque position derives from the blurring boarders between home and world, private and public, from the confusion of the counter-experiences - in Bhabha´s words:
The unhomely moment relates the traumatic ambivalences of a personal, psychic history to the wider disjunctions of political existence´. Thus, political discourse relocates to psychic identification and produces the second self - yet intimate represents collective, becomes exposed as a symptom of time and political system.
In the exhibition `the unhomely´ we seek to reflect on the condition of in-betweenness and the insiders-outsideness, by approaching our own backgrounds. Based currently in Vienna, but originally coming from different countries, we experience the hybridity of living that blends different social and cultural fragments in a strange way. The situation of the constant bridging between the realities¬ and the emerging distance to one´s own self has become the framework of the project.
The project comes through the mediation of blockfrei.org (Curators' Agenda program).
