Cursed reproduction. Aneta Osuch’s subjective tour of the exhibition “Cursed” by Puck Verkade
(Sunday), 3.00 PM, admission at a reduced ticket price, prior registration required
Anthropocentrism as a reproduction of the domination of homo sapiens over other species. Patriarchy as a reproduction of the power of one sex over others. Culture as a reproduction of practices and knowledge that justify and normalise exploitation and power. Capitalism as a reproduction of the exploitation of animals, including humans, and nature, exploitation of the many by the few. It perpetuates a system which, like a plague, brings the network of the reproduction of life to the brink of a climate, environmental and social catastrophe. It sabotages the imagination (“it’s easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism”), replacing it with a coarse set of duplicated clichés. It is here that defence mechanisms are reproduced; their role, however, is not to protect but the teach us to turn a blind eye to the difficult and unpleasant. And this is where we are – those who do not want, or are afraid, to reproduce life, if only because the reproduction rights and obligations are unevenly distributed. In such a cursed scenery, Aneta Osuch will lead a subjective tour of the Cursed exhibition, in which the category of reproduction will become the key to interpretation.
Registration is required (by February 18) via the application form (PL) – link.
