The almost abstract phrase is a verbal formula, almost a social calculation law, for the
paradoxical, social role, social position, media representation and the current conventional appearance of the human female gender.
No regret, only if … then., The finding of a non-linear but associative classification enables understanding-supporting, contemporary conditions.
We live by laws.
We live according to social conventions.
We live according to specially formulated rules in the home and family microcosm.
The artistic works of the six participating artists complete the meaning and meaning of the words in the exhibition title and thus also the conception of this creative show.
The search for a new rule, a new law – an equation of every person regardless of gender. The written word and the content shown become an alternative, social calculation law – a distributive solution for a daily life under equals with the same rights and obligations that are immanent to all of us.
