“SEEN BY #11: CAREFUL UNREST” is the eleventh part of the exhibition cooperation between the Kunstbibliothek – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and the Universität der Künste Berlin at the Museum für Fotografie. Its aim is to rethink curatorial and artistic strategies in dealing with contemporary photography.

“CAREFUL UNREST” takes this year’s anniversary of the November Revolution as an opportunity to ask about contemporary aesthetics of rebellion: How can struggles for social participation be represented today? Who or what are the revolutionary subjects and how can they be (re)activated?

According to Bini Adamczak, coming uprisings should start from our ways of relating, revolution should not be thought exclusively from bottom to top, but should be concentrated on an in-between and togetherness. The artists in the exhibition question activists, play with the culture of political memory and representation, perform collective disobedience, try out new models of care and show how solidarity between man and environment could be conceived today. Can our uprising be both radical and cautious?
