How To Live Together explores the conditions and prospects of living together in terms of individual and social dimensions. Key factors of this survey exhibition not only include dynamics and shifts at the political and economic level, but also changing social relations. The works of more than thirty international artists from different generations are based on personal experience and, at the same time, point to changing relations between the private and the political, between stagnant and accelerating contemporary circumstances, reality and utopian ideals. The diverse models of living together presented, reveal how society is more than just the sum of its individuals.
