Morality is the year-long leitmotiv of Witte de With. It incorporates a changing constellation of five exhibitions, a discursive web platform, film program, performance cycle, symposium and book. Morality is one of those inflammatory topics, often evoked as being in crisis, about which everybody and every society has an opinion. From the playground to the battlefield, it shapes both thinking and behaviour. This project looks at morality as a total concept through the filter of different art forms. It does not seek to label art or individual artists as being ‚’moral’ (or indeed ‚’immoral’). Nevertheless, some of the works presented at Witte de With tackle moral issues head-on. Others provide a more oblique commentary on morally-charged situations. And others present an amoral subjectivity.
