Mind the System, Find the Gap is this year's summer exhibition at Z33 – House for Contemporary Art. More than 30 international artists seek out the gaps in the system.

Our society is governed by all sorts of systems and structures that organise and steer life. No system, however, whether political, legal, economic, socio-cultural or spatial, can comprise life in its entirety. Every system has gaps, leaks and ambiguities.The artists in the exhibition Mind the System, Find the Gap seek out these gaps. They set forth from this intermediate position to unveil, circumvent or criticise ruling systems and structures. In doing so, maybe art can change the world.

Mind the System, Find the Gap does not proffer an overly simplified critique on the notion of systems and structuring principles, but aims to seek out its complexity.

For the past few years, strong thematic exhibitions on societal issues have been Z33's trademark. It is Z33's ambition to challenge the visitor to look at the day-to-day reality with a different set of eyes, as do the artists in Mind the System, Find the Gap.
