The exhibition Status Check provides an insight into the minds and hopes of ten visual artists and writers of the same generation which are prominent in their own field. The exhibition does not claim to be a comprehensive survey of the status of contemporary art and literature. It rather focuses on the artists’ personal experience of their own past, present, and future, and its artistic communication. Their reflections manifest themselves in sculptures, graphic collages, poems, essays, multimedia installations. In the exhibition, the artists combine nostalgic memories with different concepts of time and reality, pondering upon the production of meaning and ideas of society and identity. The integration of visual art and writing provides a unique opportunity to engage in a conversation on an interdisciplinary basis and creates an artistic intersection that the exhibition revolves around.
