“We-ness” describes a sense of togetherness that is not tied to any credo or specific agenda, which has progressive potential precisely because its function is not prescribed. This idea is prominent throughout the exhibition’s research map – appearing implicitly in fields such as climate, ecology, trust, and compassion – and is closely connected to our individual and collective lived experience.
Participants: Lucía Agirre, exhibition co-curator and Guggenheim Museum Bilbao curator; Ezequiel di Paolo, Professor of Research at Ikerbasque-Basque Foundation for Science and Professor at the Logic and Philosophy of Science Department at the University of the Basque Country; and Elizabeth A. Povinelli Franz Boas Professor of Anthropology & Gender Studies, Columbia University.
Moderated by Carlos Urroz, Director of Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Foundation.
