Regular Insanity

An Exhibition about Reality and other Nonsenses

Regular Insanity is an international group exhibition of contemporary artists from various fields and disciplines at Akbank Sanat in Istanbul. The show reviews the concept of knowledge in our so-called information age, where most known is mediated through uncountable screens and media channels. While exposing a pluralist and holistic understanding of knowledge, the exhibition questions given intellectual hegemonies.

Valuing unorthodox ways of dealing with reality for formulating alternative insights in the world we live in, Regular Insanity also underlines the meaning of not-knowing and un-knowing. The exhibition at Akbank Sanat exposes that in our so drastically wild and crazy spinning world, raising questions and going beyond the known is more relevant than looking for answers and final conclusions.

Following the concept of Informal Knowledge (Michael Polanyi), Regular Insanity criticizes the insufficiency of objectivist and rationalist knowledge and reveals the importance of holistic worldviews. Today, after all absolute knowledge has vanished, truth is only valid in temporary cultural groups, and social agreements. Despite common mediatic populism, overwhelming post-truth propaganda and widely spread superficial eclecticism, artists have never given up to critically question given and achievable reality constructions. Regular Insanity reflects on this by presenting artists that question knowledge-based concepts of identity and history, as well as nationalism and geopolitics. The exhibited positions go beyond the known in order to propose alternative ways of a knowledge production that is not afraid to sometimes even draw on absurdness and nonsense in order to be able to cope with the craziness of our time.
