The group exhibition ›Zeros and Ones‹ investigates the ways artists operate within their surrounding institutional structures. Taking the algorithmic paradigm in scripting, scoring, instruction, or command, the works selected systematically complicate these procedures through lived experience. Tools and tasks are mobilized without measurable outcome while always returning to the material conditions of their labor. Through subtle redistributions, infrastructure and the body are both intimately as well as violently situated towards each other. The practices of artists such as Lutz Bacher, Jay Chung & Q Takeki Maeda, Hanne Darboven, Jana Euler, Jef Geys, Tishan Hsu, Ilmari Kalkkinen, Silvia Kolbowski, Pope L., Louise Lawler, Carolyn Lazard, Lee Lozano, Henrik Olesen, Sarah Rapson, Margaret Raspé, readymades belong to everyone®, Ketty La Rocca, Sturtevant, Otto Wagner, and Martin Wong, prompt us to question the metrics and hierarchies that are being reproduced in the field of art and beyond.
