Dec 2009 

The idea of making our way across centuries and continents not only allows us to accomplish a journey, but also offers opportunity for in-depth reflection upon our globalizing world. To do so, we resort to the unifying element that is water, enabling us to understand the global power struggle and issues by analyzing two sides of the world. Sarah Zürcher – www.sarahzurcher.com 
On display in this exhibition are works by artists listed below. All of them take into account today’s social scene, drawing comparisons between Western culture and various Africa, Middle East, North and South America or the Arctic and Antarctic regions… All, too, avail themselves of the unifying symbol of water to represent the flux running through the history of the world’s civilizations.

This determination to rally humanity and divide up the territories within one and the same political space is Western civilization’s particular contribution. It is what the long history of the first Roman and then Imperial domination unflaggingly built up and strengthened, laying the very foundations for the concept of universality. Today, however, this universality is being challenged; it is seen more to divide than to unite. What now comes most to the fore is the extent to which the political practices employed to unify the human race in all its diversity and within a single governmental framework represents Antiquity’s most striking legacy to the present-day world. Resurfacing thanks to globalization, it is what most deeply marks our current political reality.

The exhibition ENDGAME – BLUE GOLD (from the series of exhibitions Maritime Chronicles) is based on an endless exchange of representations and information that reflects—on a planetary scale— the liquid space comprising manifold connections in perpetual movement. It seeks to draw parallels between intersecting visions and Sarah Zürcher analyses of what has been bequeathed to Western thought and culture, as seen from varying points of view. Its overview of ENDGAME – BLUE GOLD attempts to inventory all that today’s “world citizens” think and conceive of what they do, or do not, have in common.
