“The Burnout Society”

Sara Bachour  /  Elisa Verkoelen  /  Milena Dahl  /  Stef Lemmens

The Burnout Society’ is an exhibition that reflects on the demands of Society, and the way it influences new generations, thanks to the perspectives of young artists in the Euregio. “The contemporary psychic maladies, among them burnout, indicate an excess of positivity, that is not negations so much as the inability to say no; they do not point to not-being-allowed-to do-anything but being able-to-do-everything” (‘The Burnout Society’ by Byung-Chul Han, 2015) How can one choose between what they ‘should’ and ‘could’ do in a Society where everything is possible? How does this impact young people – those who are supposed to create a better future, resolve climate chance, fight for humans right, fair practice, a more egalitarian society? In the exhibition, we highlight the unhealthy dynamics of our Society, using the work of the artists exhibited as a starting point to reflect on the infinite sea of possibilities which affects so many of us. This exhibition is a cooperation between The Artist and the Others and PontArte
