Headlands Center for the Arts presents De-Mobbing: Landscape, Structure, Bioform
A group exhibition centered on the concept of demobilization. As the beginning of the end of war, demobilization is the first step towards recovering from devastation by turning away from patterns of conflict toward more positive configurations of resource and society.
Though much of the work in this exhibition is not thematically about war in an explicit way, it encompasses a range of alternative visions from the utopian to the dystopian. As an ensemble, the work represents the affects generated from approaching apocalypse, but also strips back to a blank slate of beginning again, pointing to ambiguities of human potential for creativity and self-destruction, marked by power and powerlessness, pride and pathos, possibility and failure.
