About

T.A.F./ the art foundation presents the group exhibition Lost, eroded & Vulnerable which hosts the works of 9 young artists.


When the surface of things is at the same time their maximum depth and nothing holds any uncertainty or ambiguity, it is very easy to not be able to really connect. The world is constantly becoming more and more transparent and yet more and more paradoxical: while the complete removal of ambiguity appears as the absolute order of the times, we often find it difficult to distinguish between the authentic and the simulated.

In Society of Transparency (2011) Byung-Chul Han develops his thoughts on contemporary culture and technology and argues that in our hyper-connected, digital age, we live in a society increasingly characterized by radical transparency. This transparency is not only about the flow of information but also extends to the self. This is a society where individuals willingly expose themselves to social media, while corporations and governments monitor and collect data on citizens extensively. Hahn argues that this ubiquitous transparency leads to self-exploitation, anxiety, and erosion of privacy as individuals voluntarily become both observers and observed, resulting in a loss of authentic human connection and a shift toward a more conformist and performative culture.

Conversing with a wide range of interpretations of the concept of transparency, the exhibition addresses issues of lost identity, eroded boundaries and complete vulnerability in an age characterized by over-connectivity, over-exposure and over-control. The featured works translate Khan's ideas into a visual language that resonates with the complexity of the modern world. The concept of transparency is interpreted and used differently each time, giving rise to idiosyncratic interpretations of privacy, closeness, the opacity of the hidden self, the unexposed, but also the clear and shared. Perhaps in this sense the exhibition is also a peculiar topology of passion, as it was expressed through the meeting and dialogue of the nine young artists who present their work at T.A.F. / the art foundation.
