From July through October, Innsbruck-based Taxispalais. Kunsthalle Tirol is honored to present the collective exhibition named “Die Wissen” (Knowledge).
In German grammar, the article determines the gender, number, and case of a noun. The dictionary says “das Wissen” (knowledge) can only be used in the singular and with a neuter article, implying the idea of a neutral canon. A canon that differentiates between right and wrong. Something to be assimilated, memorized, and then reproduced when needed. People with multiple belongings, longings, and varied horizons of experience know more than that; they embody and live their knowledges (die Wissen) of different situations and environments. This collective exhibition Taxispalais. Kunsthalle Tirol shows the works of Nooshin Askari, Hiwa K, Michelle & Noel Keserwany, Elif Saydam, Vina Yun & Moshtari Hilal. The show “Die Wissen” is the second part of the Taxispalais gallery trilogy on togetherness tackling the overarching question of how we can discuss and practice discourses of multiple belongings more adequately in Western Europe. The artists in this exhibition are working with “Die Wissen” and share these knowledges through their art.
The show was curated by Setareh Shahbazi & Nina Tabassomi.
