Golden Shower

In sociological research, “golden shower” is seen to be connected to the every more ubiquitious emanations of the porn industry. This is only one of many elements in the topic of how relationships between people take shape and how remuneration will play a role in them when business is intruding every aspect of human relationships. Nowadays this can also be seen in how nursing homes are converted into soulless business ventures and old age becomes a field for financial exploitation. The group exhibition “Golden Shower” will focus on instances of commercialization of human relationships; how the visual world and social media are flooded by images of the porn industry. Works in a variety of media – painting, installation, video, sculpture, photography, drawing, and performance – will pose questions and provide different approaches to answers or interpretations.

Die Gruppenausstellung “Golden Shower” thematisiert künstlerisch die zunehmende Kommerzialisierung zwischenmenschlicher Beziehungen. 
Ob im Internet (soziale Netzwerke, Pornoindustrie), in Altersheimen oder in Krankenhäusern, Profitabilität ist ein Faktor, der das Zwischenmenschliche heutzutage mitgestaltet. 
In der kuratierten Ausstellung werden sieben künstlerische Positionen in unterschiedlichen Medien (Malerei, Installation, Video, Skulptur, Fotografie, Grafik und Performance) präsentiert.
