What is the Proper Way to Display a Flag?
Flags are vividly expressive political symbols that are used in many different ways in artistic works. They stand for shared, communal convictions and values, emphasize national sovereignty, mark territorial borders, enclose and exclude. But flags are also used for protest and resistance. The exhibition What is the Proper Way to Display a Flag? focuses on international positions from an international context and endeavors, by means of contemporary artistic production, to reflect upon the significance, impact and utilization of flags. Questions concerning our various conceptions of identity, nation, and provenance come into view.
