LILI VOIGT ABOUT IDENTITY NOMADS

To me personally, the “Identity Nomads” exhibition presents a counter-concept to the global trend of exclusion and isolation.By connecting (un)social media and politics, the world is at risk of becoming trivialized.
Emotions not facts get center stage. Fake news can hardly be distinguished from real stories anymore.
This opens the door for manipulation into false beliefs. We are being distracted from the truth and true issues.
The artist can make a case for understanding and reflecting on others with an open mind, guided by a sense of respect and appreciation of that which is different.

This exhibition can inspire not to judge, but to grow with the encounters of “foreign” and “other” we experience in our lives.

What inspired you to create your work for Identity Nomads?

Identity: Self-image and ideals.
The individual pursuit of happiness determines the behavior of mankind on their planet. Money, technology and media have become substitute gods worshipped by modern society. In their exorbitant craving for recognition men become “wannabegods” between self-realization and self-loss.
Sooner or later, everywhere and nowhere, they revel in their impossible presence in the “network world” and celebrate the irrational rationality.

The circle closes. The old and the new nomads leave their footprints. After the end of civilization we are all barefooted again.
