IN YOUR FACE – Scope Hannover
24. May – 30. June 2018 · exhibition and catalogue · co-curator
The works of the international artists exhibited at Scope Hannover in 2018 were visually powerful, direct and unadorned. They interpreted photography in unusual and provocative ways beyond traditional narrative and reportage formats. The visual attraction of the works arouses curiosity and enables involvement with the ideas behind them. This creates discursive images that encourage a new look at familiar topics, break with prejudices and stereotypes and open up new perspectives. The supposedly obvious and the belief in images of the media society are called into question.
Just as the viewer is addressed at a physical level, the body is often the focus in terms of content: The desire for recognition and self-optimization, which can bring existential risks or lead to physical interventions. Confrontations with sexual identity and self-portrayals, with alienation processes and the technologicalization of the body. The subjective perspectives of the exhibition show the predetermined breaking points of these social developments and conflicts.
