Focusing on both present and future, moving in time and space between concerns with microcosms and universes, this exhibition resounds in a polyphony of individual perspectives interwoven by different ideas of aesthetics and culture — as well as standards of ‘goodness.’ The dream of good art — however it is made and wherever it comes from — has to be rooted in truth, ethics and a belief in life.
