Over the last century, technologies, economies, societies, and political systems have been transformed, constituting a revised yet always shifting cultural landscape. In order to keep up, we constantly search for new feeling by way of the next lifestyle app, the next detox, the next transformative spirit journey to calm the nerves. Low-Grade Euphoria highlights the work of artists who respond to these shifts in the cultural landscape and suggest sensory experiences to guide us through them. It is a simultaneously frantic and subdued search for the traces of joy that enable and perpetuate social life today. With the help of performances, video, sound, and installation works, the exhibition rushes forward, toward new feelings and temporary joys, happily, in a daze.
