The exhibition concept is based on the principle of "non-reduction", which conceives the exploration of reality as a network of autonomous actors. Bruno Latour, a leading proponent of this approach, states that "nothing is in itself either reducible or irreducible to anything else, therefore everything we consider real is only real if it has stood the test of strength with something else; there are no equivalences, only transitions, and translations."
The exhibition Only Transitions and Translations takes inspiration from this notion and sees it as an opportunity to turn attention away from "art" as a product created on the basis of a precise autonomous conception, of artistic expression as a network of diverse actors and the relationships between them. Our world is woven of networks: The exhibition borrows this statement and understands it as an entry-linking theme, and uses several examples of different approaches to show how networks as active agents can be seen in the context of different constructions of realities such as (personal) mythology; the coexistence of living and non-living entities; the hierarchy of low and high, lesser and greater, good and bad; the self-perception of personal or social roles; normal orders and assumed truths or potentially activist "knots".
