January 24 – May 13, 2018
TOUCHDOWN is curated by an interdisciplinary team of academics and is actively supported and co-curated by people with Down’s syndrome. Embedded in a larger research project (www.touchdown21.info), this exhibition aims to tell the history of Down’s syndrome in an interdisciplinary and experimental way. The topic embraces disciplines like archaeology, ancient and contemporary history, sociology, medicine and genetics as well as art, film and literature. Besides ongoing controversies in society and current scientific problems, this exhibition will especially focus on the complex history of a relationship: how and where do “our” and “their” worlds “touch” each other? This exhibition includes work by Creative Growth artist Judith Scott.
