The focus is on the ‘global alien’ who crosses cultural and national boundaries, thus making it possible for people to encounter a foreign or “alien” person. That which is alien is determined by the boundaries separating the known from the unknown.
The key question for the exhibition CONGRESS OF CULTURE is what a global culture might look like that both accepts its own transformation and is capable of combining the tensions of preservation and transformation within itself.
