The exhibition Biographical forms. Construction and individual mythology focuses on the exploration of identity as subjective construction and reconstruction, in the sense conveyed by Franz Kafka when he wrote: “Writing denies itself to me. Hence plan for autobiographical investigations. Not biography but investigation and detection of the smallest possible component parts. Out of these I will then construct myself, as one whose house is unsafe wants to build a safe one next to it, if possible out of the material of the old one.”
