VISION

Program

Radical Reversibility examines the interplay between image, gaze and perception from multiple angles: artistic, philosophical, non-anthropocentric, and scientific. RR functions as an open platform and a laboratory for practice and theory where artists, writers, curators and academics seek to contextualize their own work within new practices and engage in discourses in and beyond the arts. The lens-based image often forms the starting point of RR’s projects, but is usually embedded within the wider scope of the (visual) arts and societal, scientific and ecological topics. RR shares its work through curated exhibitions, online and print publications, editions, symposia, and other events.
