The exhibition Mess with Your Values introduces eleven renown positions from the multi-faceted Berlin art scene and presents the wide range of practices they developed to investigate politicially as well as artistically relevant subjects. Change in society, the encounter and exchange of different social groups, the recognition and equality of all genders as well as forms of historiography are some of the issues that are explored within video artworks, installations, performances, paintings, prints and photographs. The insight into Berlin's artistic diversity presented in the exhibition includes works by Yalda Afsah, Lars Bjerre, Jeremiah Day, Annette Frick, Katrin Glanz, Nadira Husain, Wilhelm Klotzek, Andréas Lang, Annika Larsson, Zoë Claire Miller, and Katrin Winkler. In an expressive, subversive and humorous way, they question normative perspectives and use artistic means to deliberately create ruptures that can be experienced as spaces of opportunity.

The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition
