This exhibition can make you dizzy. Artists go beyond what is established and look for other states of consciousness. They draw the audience to confront their own convictions.

Group exhibition Dizziness was a result of art-research project the Dizziness - A Resource, which has been running since 2014 by founded by Ruth Anderwald and Leonhard Grond at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, in collaboration with the Institute of Psychology at the University of Graz. States of abstinence are the starting point for exploring the frontiers of philosophy, cultural studies, medicine, research into creativity and innovation.

At the exhibition, you will see the artwork of thirty-three artists from around the world, created in the second half of the 20th century and in the 21st century. These works make the viewers a little bit dizzy. Artistic strategies are deliberately used, forcing the audience to confront their own convictions, directions of thought and intentions. Artists provoke to question the established rules or changes in the world. They go beyond what has already been established beyond the generally accepted way of thinking.

Losing the balance is just a starting point for what's going on at the exhibition. Dizziness as a loss of control and stability is analyzed both psychologically and physically. Philippe Parreno's film "There is no longer a reality" introduces us into a state of crisis. The social confusion induced by some of the traditional rituals will be shown in Cameron Jamie's film "Kranky Klaus". Uncertainty and loss of control, often accompanying a creation act, will be seen in the film "Fractal Crisis" of Swedish artists Viktor Landström's and Sebastian Wahlfors. The installation of Ann Veronika Janssens will radically draw us to insecurity. Michael Landy will propose the viewer’s self-destruction as a way to achieve the state of holiness will be offered to viewers. Bruce Nauman's exercise in the functioning in the uncertain world is one of the answers to the state of crisis. It is a challenge, and creative reaction can lead to regaining balance. Ólafur Elíasson's trust compass will help you regain your orientation in a destabilized environment. At least for a while.
