Works in Dialogue
Named so for philosopher Martin Buber’s Ich und Du, this exhibition examines the overlapping and concurrent nature of social movements, as well as the cyclical relationship to cause-and-effect imperative to the problem. Buber’s exploration of the relationships that human beings have to one another creates a platform for dialogue between the individual, society and mankind as a whole. Works in Dialogue explores the contemporary and historic, the local and the global, through the lens of our own complicated, layered and painful histories.
