  • Description

    • Exile of the Imaginary showcases artworks and critical writings that ponder the relationship between post-conceptual art practice and the legacy of Roland Barthes’s renowned A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments. The focus is on Roland Barthes’s assertion that love can be a critical “medium” in politically turbulent times. In each of the artworks in the exhibition, the question of desire provides the vehicle for approaching the actual subject matter: a specific cultural event. Art is questioned as a critical mediator of social ruptures, thus removing the dialectical divide between “political” and “lyrical” genres. The publication enhances the exhibition with a discursive examination of the subject through art historic, psychoanalytic, and linguistic essays as well as a discussion among the artists.
