Place of exhibition: Museum der Moderne Salzburg, Rupertinum

The exhibition presents works that grew out of a probing examination of different manifestations of racism. Taking a wide range of approaches, the students reflect on everyday and structural racism, question social identities, and inquire into forms of the critique of power and avenues for self-empowerment. They draw connections to other forms of discrimination and address the mechanisms of social media as well as neo-colonialist practices in tourism. Their own positions within cultures and economies in Austria and how they tie in with their perspectives on racism are a central concern throughout. The exhibition is conceived as a space of negotiation, changing over the course of its duration to illustrate an ongoing discussion that accommodates unanswered questions, fragmentary arguments, and changes of direction no less than finished works.
