Itamar Gov at the exhibition The Myth of Normal: Chronic Contradictions at Salzburger Kunstverein (08/05/2024)

The group exhibition The Myth of Normal: Chronic Contradictions puts the spotlight on fundamental questions concerning the relationship between the body and society. Against the backdrop of the UEFA EURO 2024 – an athletic event at which high-performance bodies compete – the show at Kunstverein Hannover presents artistic perspectives on the perception and reception of vulnerability, individual and collective trauma, in an exploration of pain, illness and therapy, healing practices and – ultimately – concepts of care and (re)distribution. 

From the May 8 to June 30, the Salzburger Kunstverein showcases The Myth of Normal: Chronic Contradictions a group exhibition, with the conceptualized in collaboration with Kunstverein Hannover - intricately paired with Kunstverein Hannover’s The Myth of Normal: Of Competing and Conceding, serving as its sororal twin in exploring the standards of “normalcy” in health and societal expectations inspired by the insights of Dr. Gabor Maté.
