The exhibition shows four art genres and different aspects of the theme »happiness«: the photos of Tatsumi Orimoto deal with a son’s life with his ill mother; Ene-Liis Semper comments ironically on sexuality and happy relationships; there is the »lunacy« of a smile by David Kasdorf, and the symbiosis of »Romulus and Remus« by the Canadian artist Max Streicher. The exhibition is an expedition into everyday, comic, disturbing, thought-provoking, or dreamlike aspects of happiness – and its opposite.
