Corona, climate change, war: the world is rotating in crisis mode. At the same time, the ever-increasing concentration of property in the hands of a few leads to extreme wealth inequality and puts the future of social societies at risk. In the exhibition curated by Beate Eckstein, Sarah Klaußner and Annelie Pohlen, eight art fellows of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation turn their gaze, shaped by different biographies, to the global crises and the unforeseeable consequences of inequality and injustice. Special attention is paid to the groups on the margins of society. What do they dream of? And what price do they have to pay for the global crises?

Participating art fellows: Anastasiia Batishcheva, Gabriel Enrique Corredor Aristizábal, Shokoufeh Eftekhar, Magdalena Kallenberger, Diego Antonio Oliva Tejeda, João Pedro Prado, Amir Tabatabaei and Astra Zoldnere.

In photographs, video works, drawings and installations, Anastasiia Batishcheva, Gabriel Enrique Corredor Aristizábal, Shokoufeh Eftekhar, Magdalena Kallenberger, Diego Antonio Oliva Tejeda, João Pedro Prado, Amir Tabatabaei and Astra Zoldnere reflect their individual perception of social conditions. The works do not aim at marketable answers or solutions to the social, economic and political consequences of growing inequality worldwide. Instead, their transformation of realities is revealed in sometimes poetically coded, sometimes subversively documenting narratives of inequality and injustice. They deal with the destruction of our livelihoods, the exploitation of natural resources and the growing walls between rich and poor. Who pays the bill in the end remains only hinted at in this interplay of realities and dreams.
Art’s capital is its existential questions in the multi-layered struggle for open spaces and possible utopias.

The exhibition takes place within the framework of the focus project “Who pays the piper? – For a Just Future!”, in which the Friedrich Ebert Foundation is developing visions of a justly financed and designed future.

Curated by Beate Eckstein, Sarah Klaußner and Annelie Pohlen.
