The exhibition explores the question of how artists, in relation to their environment, create their own worlds through care practices and resilience strategies. Based on the artistic processes used for this purpose, it designs an exemplary network of relationships to enable an involving, reciprocal encounter.
In biology, "morphoses" are non-hereditary variations in the shape of plants and other organisms that arise through the influences or stimuli of their environment. Based on this, artistic work can also be understood as a formative reference to and response to specific conditions: for example, in the (critical) reference to social roles, empowerment/disability, desire or gender affiliation. The artists in the exhibition design their own life worlds and practice alternative forms of relating to the world. In doing so, they transform different knowledge practices and biographical experience into aesthetic forms of expression that address the edges of our society and open up plural, intersectional, including (queer) feminist narrative perspectives. The artists' processes and works can be read against their respective specific backgrounds as practices of resistance that enter into alliances and productive dissonances within the framework of the exhibition. The exhibition space thus becomes a meeting place for historical as well as current counter-narratives, which in turn have an impact on their surroundings. They are given space for mutual questioning, updating and mediation through a comprehensive accompanying programme. Here, the reference to Donna Haraway's "Worlding" is obvious, which can be understood as a participatory practice of becoming world.
