“We can learn to examine situations from the point of view of their possibilities, from which they communicate with and that which they poison. Pragmatism is the care of the possible.” 1

Le Soin des Possibles, which translates into “The Care of the Possible”, is an exhibition presenting artists working strategically with care in their practice. Care for bodies. Care for the possible. The invited artists work in the gap where ethics meet aesthetics. Their activism is non-linear and perhaps therefore not activism. But despite their non-explicit approacheach of the artists disturb the status quo in their own poetical, attentive and firm way.

The exhibition concept is inspired by Belgian philosopher Isabelle Stengers’ interview Le Soin des Possibles by Erik Bordeleau. Stengers speculates in consequences and possible practices focusing on communities, alliances and practices of care, feminist sorcery andneo-pagan witchcraft. Rather than defining itself through antagony this type of practiceproduces its own sense of presence.
