Politics of ME is a contemporary art exhibition presenting personal aspects on world views, on views of society and on self-perceptions through the eyes of 17 new generation artists who pay strong attention to the circumstances surrounding them by taking 'oneself' as a part of the phenomenon or by engaging in self-inquiry relating to the attitude towards particular issues.
When political views have partially become determinants of the structure of living, Politics of ME presents both thoughts and artistic expressions from the viewpoints of new generation which focus on the meaning of living that resides between idealology and reality. It also presents minor influences that are hidden among capitalism and international cultural media which foster the idea and living of this generation who struggle for uninfluenced voices amid chaotic information. Methods of thought and also mundane livings encourage the rise of individualism which deviates from common stereotypes. The individual ways of living at the same time have formulated various groups of concepts in order to present the ever-changing condition of contemporary people in the age of flux.
Through artworks, Politics of ME deals with range of topics concerning the way young generation tackles coeval issues which generate critical thinking process, the way they seek balance to handle self-conflict, how they cut the ideas and dissimilar images then paste them together in order to redefine the word " original", the DIY ways of living led by instinct for spiritual freedom that emphasize the renouncing of patronage system, the way technology is used as a tool to reshape our understandings towards the world and lastly, the "looking forward attitude" that comes together with the notion of "good life" to look for the concept of possibility of physical and mental quality of life in the midst of current circumstances.
Not only art exhibition but Politics of ME is also a collaboration between artists, book creators, and film directors to contribute their viewpoints related to the theme and content of the exhibition by presenting in the form of exhibition catalogue, art activities, short film that are to be posted on social networking websites. The objective of Politics of ME is to reflect the society of young generation who bargain hard between existence, the complixity of social structure,and influences of surrounding circumstances; finally is to demonstrate social movements that circulate and form a network which allow forseeing any future possibilities.
