“I don’t know what I want, but I want it NOW!”
With the title from a quote by Vivian Stanshall, the exhibition explores themes of immediacy, urgency, compulsion and capitalism with works by artists from different global perspectives and moments in time.
“I don’t know what I want, but I want it NOW!” presents an international, European exhibition of new and existing visual art, multimedia, sound and performance works that explore the interplay between the urgency in politically and environmentally precarious times.
Viewers are invited to embark on a thoughtful journey through the exhibition space and experience a cross-cultural dialogue with the artists’ works. From immersive videos to 2D and 3D works and sound, the concept or idea is to focus on the extreme conditions we currently live under, both economically and psychologically. At the same time, it explores what Buddhists call “hungry ghosts”, beings tormented by a desire that can never be satisfied.
This phrase is borrowed from a satire by Vivian Stanshall that eerily fits today’s distribution of deprivation and overconsumption.
All the works will respond to the title in its broadest sense, “I don’t know what I want, but I want it now!”

We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,—
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.
Why should the world be over-wise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.
We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise,
We wear the mask! Paul Laurence Dunbar
