About the Exhibition

Sociological studies inform us of the numbers pointing to constantly rising levels of unhappiness, depression, anxiety, loneliness and isolation. At the same time, to date there has never been a society which offered so many possibilities for satisfying our needs and desires. The billion-dollar happiness industry, which is built upon the ideology of individual happiness, with its ever-present commercial incitement to indulge in pleasure, continues to prosper. Happiness reaches us in the form of pills, apps, self-help manuals and a range of other “conveniences”. But the more we fulfil our desires, pleasures, dreams, the greater the void we envelop ourselves in. How can we therefore attain equanimity and live a happy life? And is this possible whatsoever under our current conditions? … We are permanent seekers of happiness. We all know that it exists, but when we have it we are unable to properly feel the moment. This may be linked with the various goals we set ourselves and the values we aspire to, or the modes of our (un)conscious behaviour. The exhibition project Rotating Happiness by Jana Kapelová and Veronika Olejárová is a response to precisely this reality.



The project is the first chapter of the autumn exhibition cycle of Galerie 35M2 addressing the theme of collective happiness.

The exhibition is open every day except Sunday, always from 11 am to 7 pm.
We look forward to your visit!
