A stance observed throughout Europe has recently met with the approval of many voters, a stance that Olga Flor describes as “antihumanism as new pragmatism”. The author writes: “Severity and becoming hardened to other people’s suffering is declared to be a political necessity and proclaimed a social norm.” People seeking refuge in Europe have long been described as an enemy that unites right-wing populists in all countries. The artworks and stances of the artists in this exhibition set out to oppose this.
