In the current political environment saturated by political aggression and segregation along various kinds of power lines, processes of reconciliation and forgiveness have been strategically used as tactics for political and social manipulations. For this two-day exhibition at The New School, artists were asked to contribute a statement, video, image or text to address the Reestablishing of Cordial Relations or Forgiveness in the context of their work and political environment.

Organized by Andrea Geyer, the exhibition features works by artists Ayreen Anastas/Rene Gabri, Nancy Brody, Matthew Buckingham, Discoteca Flaming Star (Cristina Gomez Barrio & Wolfgang Mayer), Ulrike Feser, Benj Gerdes, Jennifer Hayashida, Sharon Hayes, Maryam Jafri, Jesal Kapadia, H. Lan Thao Lam/Lana Lin, Cristóbal Lehyt, Tara Mateik, Ulrike Müller, Taisha Paggett/Ashley Hunt, Katrin Pesch, Yvonne Rainer, Emily Roydson, James Tsang, Valerie Tevere, The Speculative Archive (Julia Meltzer/David Thorne), and Urban Subjects (Sabine Bitter/Jeff Derksen/Helmut Weber).

The Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School is dedicated to serving as catalyst for the discourse on the role of the arts in society and their relationship to the socio-political climate in which they are created. It seeks to achieve this through the organization of public programs and forums that respond to the pressing social and political issues of our time as they are being articulated by visual and performing artists. The center engages the university community, the people of New York, and national and international audiences in an exploration of new possibilities for civic engagement. This exhibition is part of our year-long investigation of “Considering Forgiveness.”
