Liam Gillick: How To Live Together
Kunsthalle Wien
May 25 – October 15, 2017

How To Live Together explores the conditions and prospects of living together in terms of individual and social dimensions. Key factors of this survey exhibition not only include dynamics and shifts at the political and economic level, but also changing social relations. The works of more than thirty international artists from different generations are based on personal experience and, at the same time, point to changing relations between the private and the political, between stagnant and accelerating contemporary circumstances, reality and utopian ideals. The diverse models of living together presented, reveal how society is more than just the sum of its individuals.
From August Sander’s portraits of society to Tina Barney’s depictions of social elites to Cana Bilir-Meier’s cinematic exploration of the forgotten stories of migrant workers, How To Live Together shows that the stranger, the other, is something people are made into. Universal human feelings including love, fear, faith, and longing for peace, are addressed by Goshka Macuga’s android, which launches an appeal to humanity while simultaneously calling for traditional role models to be overcome. Inspired by the debate on Brexit, Wolfgang Tillmans’ campaign marks a counter-movement: involvement in civil society – based on solidarity and on what interconnects us – gains heightened importance.
