The exhibition The next 21 days will be crucial of the School for Curatorial Practices and Critical Writing World of Art juxtaposes artworks that question their production, the laws of the art system, or the re-traditionalisation of society through culture. All works have a common discrepancy between what is expected and what is actual, this humorous resolution of the discrepant provides our perspective with greater abstractness and manageability. The uncertain reality of this past year, with consequences extending to both personal and socio-political life, is often so absurd that we can only respond to it with humour.
