First Person Plural at BAK

Eva and Franco Mattes, Dark Content

Several episodes of Dark Content are installed in “First Person Plural: Empathy, Intimacy, Irony and Anger”, curated by Matteo Lucchetti at BAK, Utrecht (thanks Matteo!!!). Photos are here.

“What roles do emotions and affects play in forming collectivities and political belonging? What kind of “we’s” do empathy, intimacy, irony, and anger assemble, and how do they determine which “first person plurals” someone is part of? And where does the affective power of art stand in these processes?

Thanks to photographer Tom Janssen for the great shots!
