Crisis are thresholds and doors to a possible other world. In an age of multiple and interconnected ecological and social crisis, "Umbrales / Thresholds" begins with the protests of October 2019 in Chile, which paved the way for fundamental change and the empowerment of civil society. The protests and the ensuing processes for a collectively driven reform of the constitution can be seen as a kind of magnifying glass for the existential crisis in our shared lives, with the constitution as a threshold that triggers reflection on the effects of human activities on ecological systems, on gender equality, on the political dimension of language, and on the effects of social technologies on our perception.
In a collective process that brings together voices from the arts, from philosophy, from activism and from sociology, we are attempting to connect the two cities of Santiago de Chile and Stuttgart and thereby to create spaces for the reflection and production of social change. The exhibition takes place in cooperation with the Bienal de Artes Mediales in Santiago de Chile (18.11.2021 – 27.02.2022).
