Salon of Cultures: “Totem”

© Lorenz Friedrich


In our modern world, you might think that the concept of totems and symbols no longer exists, as animal figures are no longer used to express an inner quality. But is this really the case? Or is today's society simply better at hiding this than our ancestors? In this exhibition curated by Osama Zatar, four artists will present their works that use this symbolism both explicitly and unconsciously to channel emotions and represent them visually.
