Featuring the work of 27 international artists. Function.Anomy will open on Thursday, 28th of March 2019 in the Reinickendorf Town Hall (Rathaus Reinickendorf). Over the course of the 8 weeks exhibition, Function.Anomy will host an exciting range of events focused on art practice and current problematics of the art system. In the course of the exhibition a group of artists will be selected to take part to the ideal continuation of Function.Anomy exhibition – an art residency which will take place in Paduli (Italy).
A town hall, or Rathaus, is one of the most conspicuous places where the state and its citizens interact. Not only is it a bureaucratic hub where endless paperwork is produced, but also a political space where an elected council rules on issues related to the local community. In this environment, citizens are guided by a set of predefined pathways that lead to institutional spaces and activities. Making use of a vast variety of approaches and languages, Intermission artists present their perspectives about the resilient anomic element interfering in every functional context. They explore possible patterns of meaning at the borders between socio-cultural structures and the metaphorical space of the anomy.
