Jun Yang in conversation with Nicolaus Schafhausen
Individuals and society are in a permanent process of negotiation, where aspirations and reality collide. Hopes, desires and utopias on the on hand, pressures to adapt and expectations on the other hand lead to latent conflicts, which every subject has to argue with – either with themselves or their environment.
The films, objects and installations by Jun Yang reflect this tension between subjective and collective identity in different cultural contexts. The dream of a better future thereby forms a constant, which always has to undergo new challenges.
Jun Yang will also introduce a number of his more recent video works during the conversation with Nicolaus Schafhausen.
