About

Von Goetz Art is pleased to present ‘For I’m not among the waders: The story of Zebedee’ curated by Oliver Morris Jones and Lucy von Goetz at the Post_Institute in Brixton. Continuing with the Institute’s programme of curatorially ambitious group exhibitions, this show aims to unpack and question our understanding of contemporary belief systems, convening seven artists whose practices relate to the iconography, vocabulary, mythology and psychology of worship. Tackling such broad topics as the simulacra, the cult of celebrity, art historical thematics, eroticism, the mediated image, capitalist realism, the worship of self, and the semiotics of pseudo-religions, the exhibition will forward a dialectical discussion on the notion of faith and the devoted subject.

“The illusory paradise that represented a total denial of earthly life is no longer projected into the heavens, it is embedded in earthly life itself. The spectacle is the technological version of the exiling of human powers into a “world beyond”; the culmination of humanity’s internal separation.”

 - Guy Debord, The Society of the Spectacle
