Catalogue Uncertain States of America


Catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition Uncertain States of America (08.10.-11.12.2005)

Wishing to provide a picture of the new generation of American artists, the curators have chosen young artists with a new vision.
This exhibition is a unique presentation of young and emerging American artists. It consists of more than 120 works by over 40 young artists,
and presents a wide spectrum of expressions, from video and film to installations and paintings.
The curators note that they have been confronted with a narrative art, and an ability to tell new and disparate stories.
They have encountered artists who are cognizant of their historical context, and who, on many different levels, express a clear social and political consciousness.
Meanwhile, all the works break new creative ground, and have a strong aesthetic awareness.
