The photographs and video projects in the exhibition SMUZ focus on the unclean, the discarded, the hopeless, the aesthetic and the formal.

It’s on top of it. It’s inside.
As a film. A poison. A solution.
Dirt is the contamination of surfaces or substances
and, like art, depends on context and individual perception.
What is clean? What is the opposite? Is there compurgation?

Is the dirt gone, is the problem gone?
People are also pulled through the dirt or pelted with dirt, they themselves are sometimes regarded as dirt that contaminates the respective culture. A pejorative imagery is increasingly gaining power.
