WENN ZWEI SICH STREITEN, FREUT SICH DER DRITTE
There is a lot of talk about arguing. What are the limits of what can be said - where does constructive discussion end and where do personal insults and disparagement begin?
In 2023, the Francke Foundations are dedicating their annual exhibition to the difficult and socially central topic of disputes. The curatorial team will use selected exhibits and interactive stations to relate the culture of arguing at different times.
Hereby the limits of what can be said are not fixed, but always have to be determined together. We humans are responsible for how we treat each other. From this point of view the exhibition will investigate the mechanisms of the dispute based on concrete disputes, the media used and the people involved or affected.
The panorama ranges from historical images of the "quarrel over the trousers" between the sexes to bitterly arguing scholars to Frederick II of Prussia and from sound conflicts in opera and rap to disparagements in talk shows and social media to the football stadium as an arena for disputes.
