Chosen Ignorance

On Knowledge and Things That We Do Not Wish To Know

7 December 2021 - 12 February 2022

Curator: Ekmel Ertan

Participants: Morehshin Allahyari, Soheila Golestani, Mary Maggic, Jennifer Lyn Morone, Christoph Wachter & Mathias Jud, Pınar Yoldaş, Tansu Açık, Zeynep Direk, Pascal Gielen, Güven Güzeldere, Anıl K. Jain, Ömer Madra, Renata Salecl, Ebru Yetişkin

We know that we cannot know everything. A part of what we know is composed of those things that we learn unconsciously, inextricably. A part of what we don’t know is composed of the ones we prefer not to know. In that case, what we don’t know, just as much as what we know, is about our choices. Our knowledge universe is composed of those things which we choose to know and those which we do not know. We also form our ignorance through our choices. What do we not wish to know and why?

This exhibition which we designed around knowledge and those things which we wish not to know includes five art works and eight video-talks. Art works and video-talks in the exhibition are about the nature of knowledge, themes we choose not to know and the reasons for that choice from a broad perspective.
