Democracy

Esse proposes a critical reflection on the concept of democracy in order to explore its inherent contradictions and its real lived fallout, as well as the role that art can play within it. By bringing together multiple, open, and possibly divergent positions, the feature section addresses the urgent need to better understand art’s role in the current political context in order to potentially foster a desire to participate in a new democracy.

New New Age

Over the last few years, the occult has made a stunning comeback in art, manifested through a re-appropriation of esoterism, a holistic and beneficial approach, and a desire for social and ecological justice. The works in the portfolio New New Age stand out for their powerful intention to re-enchant the world, recognize the agency of matter, and campaign against the destruction of Earth and for all living things, by exploring what is luminous and performative in this philosophy and its rituals.
