From critically reflecting on the status quo to proposing alternative solutions for living together (and with ourselves), the works in the exhibition position themselves against or outside of the regime of statelessness. In the exhibition space, fictional biographies mix with true stories so that it becomes difficult to decide which voice and evidence to follow; personal photographs turn out to be public, tears to be digital, and the tweeting artist—already dead.
