Withdrawal, silence, resilience, outcry, indignation, protestation, action, reflection, satire, humor… This collective show exemplifies the forms of resistance artists have developed when faced with the great challenges of our age – those forms amount to survival strategies.
Nowadays there is no dearth of opportunities and urgency to resist the “system” – whether named or not. We are witnessing an increasingly emphatic distrust of the political class, whose lack of responsiveness or real powerlessness is pushing a growing number of people to resist by publicly protesting everything, including experiments carried out on animals, massive deforestation, globalization, White supremacy, and sexist advertising.
