Individual Project

Don't Embarrass the Bureau

Lunds Konsthall, Lunds (SE)

Jonas Staal participates in this exhibition organized by New World Summit and 0. [Nulpunt] project. New World Summit is a project led by Jonas Staal.

The “New World Summit” and 0. [Nulpunt] project (in collaboration with design collective Metahaven) will be presented in the exhibition “Don't Embarrass the Bureau.” Curator Matteo Lucchetti brings together a group of artists whose recent work has consistently questioned the inflexible organization of human activities within so-called machine bureaucracy. Their practices reveal the existing limitations of the societal machine, but also perform an important role in imagining that our society and its rules could be different. It’s perhaps the call to transparency and to the concept of leaked-democracy that is currently forcing the state apparatus to new arrangements, and that inspires a re-thinking on how we perform our role as citizens in the light of a new paradigm of pervasive visibility.
