Imagining Health 2 is the continuation of a multi-year artistic and scientific research project between the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg (HFBK) and the Centre for the Study of Health, Ethics and Society (CHES) of the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Hamburg (UHH), which points to the intersections and potentials of mutual enrichment of disciplines that are supposedly difficult to reconcile. The ten projects developed specifically for the exhibition deal with the mental, physical and structural dimensions of health from an artistic perspective. In a broad range of content and form, they negotiate questions of injury, healing and change. Whether based on their own bodies, personal experiences or socio-historical developments, the artists share a critical and analytical view of the present.
