Departing from a mathematical formula the exhibition analyses the simplicity of a definition which, through the selection of the displayed works, questions the term of relativity. Jan Hoet would have put it this way: «Who boxes with or against whom?“ What is a museum, what art has its place in it and what can one expect?
No answer to this question is needed since the latter focuses on the insecurity that provides the necessary basis for any creative process. Institutional insecurity creates space for individual decisions – of the artist, the director of the museum or even the public. Through a daring confrontation of the displayed artworks this exhibition puts under scrutiny individual and collective acceptation.
