This selected group of artists is the best definition of the diverse global geographies in a constantly changing world. By in large, the artists’ work, included in this exhibition, rather than analyzing, describing, establishing prefigured contexts, they create from their personal, historical, and cultural circumstances. As it emerges from diverse visions of the world, from their imagery and perspectives. The borderlines thus cease, creating an outstanding synergy of new cultural subjects, energies, and expressions, bursting forth from all sides without national or regional surnames.

The artists included: Isabel Gomez Liebre, Murtathada Al –Jassani, Anmol Mathur, Stefan Beiu, Alfredo Caballero, Anca Sonia, Tina Chirita, Francisco Gordillo, Oana Nelus, Alberto Fernandez Reyes, Miguel Pavel, Lala Rahim, Peter Hillert, Radu Șerban and Dasha Eremeeva.

The eclectic and asymmetric display of artworks is based upon the vision that contemporary art of post-pandemic times does not necessarily depend on the gracious acceptance of Western art patterns. But on complex processes of alternative subjectivities, diverse expressions, and stroke of senses from memory, imagination, and personal experiences.

This exhibition at the heart of Karlsruhe is the departure of an amazing cultural journey. It is by bringing together artists creating moments of shared visions and embracing dialogues. As it will perhaps serve to envision that the beauty of difference is a gesture of affirmation of the universal condition of all humans.
