Ours: Democracy in the Age of Branding” examines the desires generated and promoted by democracy as a brand–such as choice, participation, freedom of expression, a sense of belonging, and the promise of individual success, all embodied in the notion of “liberty”–and looks at how and where these desires find fulfillment or are displaced.
The exhibition also investigates both aesthetic and political systems of representation developed in response to these desires, as well as those
power structures that run parallel to a democratic government.
