About the product

The curator and editor Ursula Maria Probst examines numerous interventions in relation to one another and in pursuit of today’s practices of political performance. What effect can art have today and what means of articulation does it possess in the face of current fields of conflict? To what extent do critical performance practices affect a repoliticisation of our apprehensive global society and art and how do they distinguish themselves from the key words of political art of the 1990s? These are the key questions along which “Touch the Reality” has been conceived.

In 2015 Ursula Maria Probst curated the Austrian contribution to the Havana Biennial and researched the art scene in Cuba.
