Exhibit A brings together fourteen internationally acclaimed artists whose response to the complex problems plaguing modern society consists in the use of forensic aesthetics and scientific tools of physics, sociology, anthropology, biology or cartography to investigate the world.
The works in this exhibition encourage a sceptical approach to formal truth: they probe the protocols and knowledge policies underlying official versions of history, carefully examining archival materials, or gathering data through interviews. The artists see themselves as being at odds with institutional authority, especially the imbalance of power that exists in any confrontation between individuals or groups and either the state and its bureaucratic machinery, or with the power and capital of corporations.
