Why Are You Angry?

Given the current circumstances and to be sure of your visit it’s highly recommended to book your ticket in advance. Choose ‘ICOM/PRESS’ during checkout. You'll have to show your ticket and digital membership ID at the counter upon arrival.

‘Why Are You Angry?’ brings together a selection of S.M.A.K.’s most recent acquisitions in the fields of video, photography and installation. The title takes the form of an open-ended question that visitors are encouraged to answer for themselves. It can also be read as an invitation to interrogate the current global social crisis from an emotional perspective. The act of questioning – whether this be the artists, the artworks, the museum or other visitors – is central to the exhibition. The artworks function as guides during the search for answers. It is hoped that the displays will act as a catalyst for a range of thoughts and feelings, from regret and dislike to enjoyment and wonder.

The exhibition includes works by Sine Van Menxel, Jacqueline Mesmaeker, Sofia Hultén, Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer.
