Modern image consumption and production are increasingly designed to satisfy our longings and fantasies while at the same time stirring them up: live streams, food pornor unboxing videosare among the screen-based phenomena from the realm of digital desire and fetishes that fathom the limits of the obsessive, intimate and perverse. These phenomena flourish thanks to our desire to see and can give us a sense of belonging, participation or demarcation. The exhibition Schaulustuses artistic and cultural manifestations to explore the interplay of gaze and desire, the role of the image and the legitimacy of the gaze against the background of the contemporary networked image.

The lust to look shall be negotiated in different subcategories. The theme of intimacy explores the border between the voyeuristic interest of the viewer, the photographic intrusion into private spheres, and the voluntary surrender of privacy. Through phenomena such as food pornor selfies, the normalization of the gaze and the standardization of images are to be addressed. Furthermore, it is to be examined how a feeling of comfort, contentment and security can be generated by means of pictures. As a counterpart, the social retreat made possible by images, the promotion of addiction-like behaviour and the image as a proxy for real life will also be investigated. The commodification of the image, technophilia and the creation of new images by artificial intelligences, which both awaken and satisfy new possibilities of seeing and the desire to look, will also be explored.
