-K-i-n-g-d-o-m- of the Ill: Second chapter of TECHNO HUMANITIES (2021-2023)

1 October 2022 – 5 March 2023

OPENING: September 30 from 7 p.m.

From September 30, 2022, the exhbition -K-i-n-g-d-o-m- of the Ill, curated by Sara Cluggish and Pavel S. Pyś, will be on show -- the second chapter of TECHNO HUMANITIES, a long-term research programme initiated by Director Bart van der Heide, this international group exhibition will occupy every floor of the museum.

Through the work and contributions of artists and international activists-K-i-n-g-d-o-m- of the Ill seeks to respond to the current debate on health and illness, contamination and purity, care and neglect by asking about how and by whom a body is defined as healthy or sick, in what ways welfare systems and corporate assistance determine healthcare, and how the common definitions of good health can be breached.

-K-i-n-g-d-o-m- of the III includes works by Enrico Boccioletti, Brothers Sick (Ezra and Noah Benus), Shu Lea Cheang, Heather Dewey-Hagborg & Phillip Andrew Lewis, Julia Frank, Sharona Franklin, Barbara Gamper, Nan Goldin and Prescription Addiction Intervention Now (P.A.I.N.), Johanna Hedva, Ingrid Hora, Adelita Husni-Bey, Ian Law, Carolyn Lazard, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Juliana Cerqueira Leite / Zoë Claire Miller,  Mary Maggic, Mattia Marzorati, Erin M. Riley, P. Staff and Lauryn Youden.

-K-i-n-g-d-o-m- of the III presents over 20 artists whose works draw on their lived experiences. Some of the artists identify as chronically ill or disabled and challenge the distinction between a healthy and an unhealthy body on a daily basis.  The exhibition investigates the ways in which welfare systems and commercial incentives determine healthcare, and how we question common definitions of good health. In this time of pandemic, increasing social anxiety, rising healthcare costs, increased monitoring of medical information and growing precarity among the creative class, can we still say we are truly healthy?
