The philosopher Hannah Arendt in her essay The Crisis in Education in 1954, questions “…whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it…”. Responsibility is defined as the opportunity or ability to act independently and take decisions without authorization and shares the same root with the word correspondence.
The exhibition “c0<3Respondences” reflects on the ability to grasp the chance to speak for oneself and respond from the heart to one another.
The exhibition is grown from the existing project “c0<3Respondences” *, which connects children in exile with their peers around the globe via physical letters. Triggered by this endeavor, the exhibition showcases the works of artists, collectives and organizations who explore ways to playfully correspond and take active responsibility against exclusion in a rapidly changing world, inviting the visitor to reflect on what makes us feel at home.
Curated by Yota Tsotra with Francesca Petrarca

*The project c0<3Respondences was initiated by a small group of people as a response to the destruction of the Moria camp in Lesvos by the big fires in 2020. The project has been supported by the School Without Frontiers, many public and community schools, organizations, teachers and individuals.
The exhibition is the result of a one-year research grant of Yota Tsotra by Atelier Mondial.
