From the curatorial text of Václav Janoščík:

All the more we are obsessed with happiness and entertainment there is growing discontent and uneasiness in achieving it. More and more it feels like we are addicted to something without knowing what it is. In the past decade we have witnessed not only global emigration to online ecosystems and refracturing of our attention economy, but also there is growing dissensus and distrust in shared experiences or values. This cannot be countered only on the level of specific issues. We also have to renew our public negotiation about happiness, its forms and power. This cannot be done in the present circuitries of economic or social capital, it's them perpetuating the problem. Maybe it could be done by doing small things, maintaining friendship, expressing values in conduct (not in posts), social reproductive work not art careers, sports not fitness.
