Playing Hide and Law at tranzit.sk

A Visual Unraveling of the Latent Power of Law

Playing Hide and Law seeks to expose the latent power of the law. Through the perception of contemporary artists, it searches for and attempts to present new images of the law. By doing so, the exhibition tackles one of the most important characterizations of the law and any legal system, that is, a hidden, undercover system of power and control.

In these days of the massive sharing of images and sounds through a growing number of social and media platforms, basic human rights such as freedom of speech and freedom of movement are being put to the test. In the aftermath of Brexit and the US elections and the global war declared by the Trump administration on women and minorities, the exhibition can be perceived as a modest contribution to the re-formulation of political art which demands an engagement between law and art. Now, perhaps more than ever, there is a need to link law and art in order to spur new theoretical and practical measures redefining both spheres in the struggle for justice.
