HOPE IS MAYBE is an art project on the diversity of hope. Hope is hardly to be defined. What do we HOPE for? Does HOPE depend on the country of origin? Our language? Our education? Our faith? Our personal emotions? HOPE IS MAYBE. Michael Härteis at Kunst verorten has initiated this art project in collaboration with Jesuit Refugee Service in Munich. Based on interviews with asylum seekers, Michael Härteis has collected prominent statements that center around these questions. In a second step, artists were asked to choose a citation from a list, reflect on it, and create or
share an artwork. An international jury selected 75 works of art to become part of the exhibition here at the airport of Munich. HOPE IS MAYBE will be growing and changing with each new artwork and further interviews, demonstrating its fluency of interpretations. “We would like to encourage people to reflect on hope, their personal and on those of others, like refugees and asylum seekers”, states Brother Dieter Müller SJ, member of the selection jury.
