The programme of events accompanying the Tallinn Print Triennial has included youth and student exhibitions since 1998. The youth exhibition forming part of this year’s triennial, ‘Spheres’, is designed to investigate the situation in which people find themselves today, using a sphere as a conceptual metaphor. Philosopher and cultural theorist Peter Sloterdijk claims that spheres are hybrid, symbolic realities, co-existence spaces which are created using available resources and which enable people to exist as people. All of life takes place within protective membranes that offer us meaning and immunity.
There are three types of sphere. Bubbles are microspheres and the smallest units of social existence, formed by the dyadic relationships between two entities. Globes are all-encompassing macrospheres which seek to bring together in themselves all individual differences as a single whole. Foam is the fragile and multi-layered body of microspheres lying in parallel to one another horizontally and vertically. The bubbles within the foam are characterised by co-fragility: when one bubble bursts, it affects those surrounding it.
