For the Dada Year 2016, the exhibition "Other Realities" focuses on art that comes about beyond the established structures of the art system. For it was none other than the Dadaists who questioned the traditional notion of art in 1916 and who began to "remove the boundaries" for this and to create artistic forms of expression outside of what was known until then. On display are works by artists from six studios at the State Association of the "Lebenshilfe Rheinland-Pfalz e.V." and the Ebernach Monastery in Cochem. The exhibition addresses the interest shown in the untrained, creative power of people with emotional or mental disorders, something that goes back as far as the early 20th century. In creatively grappling with one's own inner constitution, it is not the person as a patient but as an artist who stands in the foreground. The exhibition deals with these worlds of experience in painting, drawing, and sculpture and covers themes such as Myself and the Others, Sexuality, and the free, gestural form.
