closed Unlearning categories

The show

Unlearning categories features over sixty works by fifty artists. The exhibition invites you to abandon the known categories and explore, as in a suggestive walk in the woods, new narratives of the landscape, points of view and unexpected connections between the human and non-human beings who inhabit it and the works of art.

“The knowledge and the accumulated categories, such as human, plant, animal, have deep roots within us. What happens when an outdated knowledge gets in the way? How can we unlearn it? Often the concepts no longer work, it is necessary to unlearn internalized forms of the description of the world, and to rethink in a new way methods of construction, localization and critique of reality. " - the words of the BAU curators Simone Mair and Lisa Mazza on the concept of the exhibition appear today more relevant than ever.

Unlearning categories is the first exhibition on the works of art purchased by the Province between 2012 and 2018 . For the occasion, over sixty works including paintings, drawings, photographs and installations, leave their usual environment, the offices in which they are usually exhibited, among people, plants, stones, holiday postcards with which they are familiar, to "spend" 59 days in Museion .
