Staging an exhibition as choreography, as drama, as opera—as a place where reality, politics, aesthetics, art, film and music could address the issues of our day through documentaries, dialogues, science, activism and creativity. That is the dream, the idea, and the mission.
The primary aim of the refaire le monde exhibition trilogy at Helmhaus Zürich, involving some eighty different authorial voices, was to bring attitudes and actions into the safe space of the museum. This book is both a documentation of new values and new worlds and a guide to them. It is people-focused. It posits the arts as the model for a new reality.
