Description

TRIAL & ERROR 

AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING CHANCES, CHALLENGES, AND THE PLEASURES OF TRIAL & ERROR 

nowadays, in times of struggling with a global system crisis, we need to go forward, to invent and to discover new ways of thinking and doing. one possible strategy would be a simple principle of trial and error. in austria, we don't have an established culture of trial and error, quite the contrary - we have a distaste for risk, preferring to apply existing solutions or put faith in past experiences rather than striving to discover and pioneer. we have not yet accepted the possibility and necessity of failed attempts, thinking that if someone has failed, they have failed forever, despite being solidly aware that errors often bring you a step forward, causing something new to emerge. 

as an exhibition, trial and error explores the method itself, examining the meaning of both trial and of error for artists' personal lives, for their artistic work and within specific pieces of art and society in general. the exhibition offers a framework for "trial and error" that makes artists and audience alike experience the meaning, chances, power and relativity of these two simple words.
