UHM introduces the exhibition MOURNING PAPERS.
MOURNING PAPERS is a tribute to mourning and an exploration into its ambiguity.
The exhibition approaches the subject of mourning throughout its many forms; rough, hard, sad, beautiful, ridiculous, recurring and even seemingly boring. UHM asks the participating artists how to translate personal experiences into a universal artistic context.
In addition to the exhibition itself, UHM will initiate Mourners Anonymous – meetings.
During these M.A. meetings, the participating artists will open a dialog and discuss the different facets of mourning in personal and universal points of view. Philosopher Awee Prins will be present at the M.A. meetings and will give a lecture at the opening event on how to deal with death in the current time, he will also talk about his meetings with the artists.
As a result of the M.A. meetings the artists may reconsider decisions concerning their works and revise when necessary. The registration of the M.A. meetings will be a part of the exhibition and the MOURNING PAPERS publication.
