Alternativa 2016

24 June – 15 September 2016

Alternativa Foundation

“The Alternativa 2016 Damage and Loss exhibition is an attempt to capture the constant experience of loss and the complex, multi-layered consequences of distress. It links personal human experiences, historical traumas and economic, political and environmental conditionings. Personal integrity, dignity, health, relationships, safety, access to resources, and last but not least, life, are the values many fear losing most. Their loss not only results in a traumatic experience for individuals, communities and societies but the anxiety, shock and dysfunction they breed are often politically and commercially exploited.”
