Neue Welt (New World) documents a group show which investigates the political and, most importantly, the social restructuring of recent years. Going beyond one-dimensional statements, the texts discuss the redefinition of public space, the position of the individual in a society obsessed with spectacle, and the effects of a globalized economy.
