GROUP EXHIBITION – ‘SWEAT’ 

11 June 2021 – 27 February 2022 

Haus der Kunst, Munich, Germany 

The group exhibition ‘Sweat’ is the result of two years of intensive research. The show is dedicated to the phenomenon of bodies that act together and shape their present. Breaking a sweat in the face of violent attempts to control the human body represents an artistic strategy of resistance.  

If we are witnessing the global scale of systemic injustice at an unprecedented scale, we are also assisting to the impressive growth of alliances of transnational resistance movements. The group exhibition ‘Sweat’ brings together more than twenty artistic voices that respond to several conditions of political pressure.  

The artistic positions range from present day to pioneering works from the 1970s and ‘80s that mobilised feminist and postcolonial movements in art and society, opening up historical perspectives on artistic languages that are embedded in forms of radical social emancipation. 

Featuring Pacita Abad, Philippines and Eisa Jocson, Philippines, alongside other artists from the globe.
