Carbon 12's group exhibition hosted by Q contemporary, Beirut, Lebanon

Where are we going? All of us, everyday; this is the question we are posing ourselves. Where is Art going? Carbon 12 proudly presents "Forward/Vorwärts", a group exhibition featuring works by André Butzer, James Clar, Ghazel, Philip Mueller, Sara Rahbar, Anahita Razmi, and Ralf Ziervogel hosted by Q Contemporary, for the first time in Beirut, Lebanon.

The highly idiosyncratic approach of each artist gives us more than just insights into contemporary artistic practices, it's an impulse to radically reconfigure the role of the artist in today’s society: the artist as an alchemist, the artist as a catalyst, and the artist as a prophet. Their common denominator is the vibrant oscillation between the absolute and particular in terms of content and style, which results in extremely focused works that stir up a vibrant mix of contemplation and agitation. Deeply rooted in the heritage of their respective tools of trade, boundless in imagination and furious intent, is what unifies the selected artists.

These artistic positions will survive turmoil, cataclysm, salvation, and maybe even the end of the world as we know it. In 2012 there is no turning back. This is Forward/Vorwärts.
