I can (not) handle this

Academy of Fine Arts Vienna 1フロア
The exhibition I can (not) handle this is an attempt to comprehend the little explored areas of the wild creative thirst for self-expression, where often works are created without artistic intent. Whether it is an attempt to cope with an obsession that haunts you, a desire to escape from reality, or just an attempt at collecting that grows to uncontrollable proportions (amounts)…
I can (not) handle this is a statement about various kinds of obsessions pursued by artists, but which, at the same time, elude the direct legitimising pressure of the art market and discursive contexts.
I can (not) handle this denies any canons of established aesthetics and generally accepted understanding of art. All kinds of obsessions are welcome here. Even yours!
