For the mental health awareness month, Improper Walls, in collaboration with foundation Made
of Millions, presents the international group exhibition “Shame Shouldn't be a Symptom”.
artists share personal stories of everyday struggles and sometimes lost battles with not only mental illnesses but in this
case particularly the stigma surrounding them, addressing the shame as the major block between an individual and professional
However, their reflection goes beyond the mental health diseases, their symptoms, and
treatment. Featured artworks communicate deeper layers of the true impact of social phenomena, addressing the inevitable political
nature of a collective mental state.
Through a variety of mediums and approaches, the exhibition
aims to not only open up a dialogue between the ones experiencing the symptoms and those who don’t but to broaden the overall
understanding of one’s psyche and the term mental health.
exhibition is divided into two show spaces:
- Gallery space (Improper Walls, Reindorfgasse 42, 1150 Vienna)
Virtual room (access will be shared on the 5th of May, 2021)
