Together with Jan Tappe (curatorial assistant, HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiermark) we will go on a layered exploration of the exhibition Systems of Belief. Tappe will open the wide field of the exhibition: starting from spiritualist approaches from the 1960s and the resistant appropriation of various technologies through art, alternative belief systems are also in the focus. How do these exciting aspects converge? And what role can faith play in art? What do you actually still believe in?
