Christian Fogarolli: Pneuma
In the newly opened Off-Space Objekt A of Löwenbräukunst dis- order opened the exhibition Pneuma by Italian artist Christian Fogarolli, winner of the Italian Council Prize 2019, curated by Giulia Busetti:
During the one year research-project Fogarolli has undertaken a European-wide journey to various psychiatric institutions, their history and current programs for stabilizing mental health.

How do we consider the binary condition that distinguishes normality from deviance?
By analysing various geographical and cultural contexts, the exhibition questions the stigma and taboo often connected to the mental health disease.
