Naked life is a reflection and a critique of contemporary social and political issues. It attempts to re-examine several aspects of daily life under the political spectrum created by the operations and effects of the sovereign power. Examples range from the Cold War, post colonialism, authoritarian rule and revolution, social movements, racism, to tourism in the face of border control migrant labourers, informal economy, freedom of speech, social surveillance and the impact these phenomena have on identity, language, psychology of fear, and personal history. Artists from different countries and regions with their own personal experiences and local histories, by means of different materials and creative methods, are invited to take a look at the nakedness of contemporary life. Artist biographies are provided in the catalogue.
