Save Event: Fear of Freedom1

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


British artist Svante is an abstract expressionist known for his vibrant, colourful and often large-scale oil paintings.
This exhibition comprises a selection of oil paintings created from the synthesis of
conscious and subconscious thought during the period 2020 to 2024.


The works contained herein pose the question, are we becoming a new version of Erich Fromm’s automatons, willingly handing over our freedom to a generation of populist leaders, technology corporations and AI?

We are born into a world of preconceived ideas. No matter how openminded or 
enlightened we believe ourselves to be, there is nevertheless a significant part of our 
consciousness and interpretation of our environment that is learned in our first formative years. Our attempts to establish an internal dialogue are compromised by endless external interference. We are pushed and pulled in every direction and distracted from what is either important to us or important to us all. Democracy, capitalism, religious consciousness, scientific dogma and moderate alcohol consumption are all examples of concepts we hold so dear to our sense of virtue as to be incontestable.
