Summary note
Hardly any other emotion has such a profound effect on the person concerned as shame: our face turns red, we become lost for words, or would simply love to sink into the ground.0Despite all the cultural differences, shame still affects almost every individual. Indeed, given the broad dissemination of nude images in the media, the subject appears more topical than ever. But can we actually diagnose a lowering of the shame threshold, or are we, on the contrary, observing an escalation of tabooisation? With humorous but also sensitive and moving contributions, the exhibition explores this familiar but inscrutable phenomenon.00Exhibition: Marta Herford - Museum for Art, Architecture, Design, Herford, Germany (04.03.-04.06.2017).
Published to accompany the exhibition at Marta Herford, Herford, Germany, March 4-June 4, 2017.
