The exhibition Whereabouts and was put together by the American curatorial collective Hyperopia Projects. Whereabouts refered to the places of residence of artists, to the context in which they live, work and are active in (internationally). We looked how this context relates to their roots, their cultural or ethnic background. This ‘looking’ was also backed up by the collective’s name: hyperopia, which is the vision problem long-sightedness. Hyperopia as a metaphor for the way we see art?
