Gestures of Infinity
On too much and too little emotion and religion in a globalised world
87% art
13% religion

The constant state of being online, splitting or multiplying our identities in different milieus is often followed by a sense of being helplessly exposed that gives rise to both intricate worlds and overly simple solutions. Can the tension that arises from the globalised world be shifted into the emotions of our self?
“Gestures of Infinity” proceeds on the basis of emotionalism to process artistic gestures borrowed or developed from the repertory of religion. What is the role of religion that people often seek in fundamentalism and violence, in a geopolitical situation characterised by widely divergent interpretations of the world? But the question is also as to the relationship of religion to an artistic post-post-modernism, that reflects on and at the same time enjoys its “false infinity” (Hegel).
