About

"We're not facing our problems. We've got Prozac politics." John Gray

According to the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary someone lively and excited may safely be described as being 'on Prozac'.

In the midst of the current economic chaos, many governments are in a desperate crisis management mode whilst failing to fully recognize the developing global ecological peril caused by an unsustainable demand for resources to fuel the rapidly failing economic systems.

Where do contemporary artists position themselves within this global context? Do they provide a Prozac-like distraction or tackle these issues head on?

Contemporary artists institute almost countless positions from where their research and ideas begin. Prozac Politics formulates a relationship between eleven contemporary artists finding connections between their differing practices that originate with diverse starting points be they political, ethical, architectural or technological. These diverse artists find a shared commonality within the expressive potential to combine concept and method that transforms not only imagery but also the viewers' responses to them.
