On Rage

Exhibition, Film, Discourse
14 March - 09 May 2010

All events ...

Is there a new "culture of rage" in the current economic and political crises and states of emergency? When does pent-up frustration break into rage, impede individual and social diplomacy, and erupt into passion? How can this rage be tapped for positive future developments? ON RAGE considers both its horror and transformative potential.

The program constantly shifts the focus by allowing genres to interplay: The exhibition formulates artistic statements that intervene in the discussions, readings and talks. We are dealing here with sublimated, condensed rage. Lectures held every Wednesday draw up a contemporary phenomenology of this primary effect within a political, philosophical, and postcolonial context. Films take on the subject of rage associatively and performances open up other approaches to the artistic and theoretical positions. Visitors have an opportunity to explore their own creative potential in “Rage Rooms” , where they will look at the works of the exhibition in light of Berlin’s social issues. The program concludes with a „Wut-Gipfel / Rage Summit“ : dialogues, open discussions and ReReadings of key texts - from Bataille to Che Guevara and Darwin to Sloterdijk.
