‘I Don‘t Want It In My Body‘ commemorate an era of indifferent indulgence and a youth torn between prosperity and sadness, disposable culture and climate protection, self-documentation and the search for truth.
To resist the opposing pressures that play upon them, the new “generation techno” descends into trance, breaking free from the uniformity around them. In a digitalized world, terror and fake news encircle the construct of identity. The unrestricted nature of techno culture presents an alternative to the downward spiral. Goa and Gabber form the delirious soundtrack of this trip. While psytrance is rich with spiritual sensuality, hardcore stands for the synthesis of man and machine.
The title of the exhibition contextualizes this search for identity between adoption and alienation. The body becomes a showcase for the individual’s attitude, a bin for the rubbish of consumer society and the holy temple of self-determined being.
