Ressentiment (french for resentment) is much more than a stereotype, cliché or negative image that only comes to be used when it is a case of defaming a political opponent: the theme of resentment involves cultural processes that are much more subtle. Resentments are in fact lightavoiding growths that ourish in the shadow of the experience of a humiliation,subjection or defeat and structure the relationship between the inferior and the superior. The perception of a real or felt imbal- ance with respect to others can arise in individuals, groups, linguistic or religious communities – but also in entire nations. The topic of this exhibition is today most acute, at times where autoritarianism and nationalism are escalating almost everywhere. This exhibition gathers work by about 17 artists working on an international level.

This exhibition gathers works by 17 artists:

Awst & Walther, Declan Clarke, Dear Hunter, Elisabeth Gabriel & Daryoush Asgar, Christoph Gielen, Konstantinos-Antonios Goutos - the[video]Flâneu®, Andy Hope 1930, Francois Knoetze, Tímea Anita Oravecz, Julian Röder, Alina Schmuch & Franca Scholz, Gerold Tagwerker, Thomas Zipp.

The opening is on January 22nd 3 p.m. at the ikob – Museum of Contemporary Art in Eupen, Belgium.
