    "Only in the Western World" curated by LUIGI FASSI

    Opening on Thursday, September 8th, 2016, 6-9 pm

    According to the German philosopher Max Weber (1864-1920), rationality is a uniquely European phenomenon, a set of philosophical guidelines that define the sensibility and horizons of Western and European modernity only. Despite having extensively investigated non-European cultures, Weber draws an asymmetrical comparison in his work between Western modernity and the status of other societies, conducted from a European point of view and unable to achieve a reciprocity of perspectives. The current exhibition takes as its point of departure the Eurocentrism inherent in Weber's expression "nur im Okzident", and aims to question such rationalist exclusivity.
    The project presents works by artists operating within a framework that is critical of Western culture, in order to unmask the darker side of its famed rationality – as colonialist, racialized, and predatory. The works displayed in the exhibition thus enact a multiplicity of strategies to claim a different reading of history and rationality. In this way, the artists frame for themselves their own ancestry and roots, opening an increased space for freedom, knowledge and empowerment.
