The Re-examined Life
MetadataShow full item record
The Re-examined Life is an interdisciplinary exhibition of contemplative and interactive artworks that use the expectations of conventional belief systems to question widespread perceptions and value judgments of our current culture. Each piece is created collaboratively, beginning with dialogical investigations that attempt to clarify what it means to be-in-the-world. These inquiries take us beyond accepted models of social organization and lead us to question and uncover the illusions of our current systems. The result is an exhibition of five modules: a Social Bank, an Identity Centre, Reflective Sculptures, Community Tables and a Listening Lounge. Each module reimagines familiar objects and settings, revealing the unstable nature of human knowledge. Visitors are encouraged to interact and openly reflect on how the authority of physical space and social systems shape who we are in the world.
