The DA ! Art Award is presented every two years by the Düsseldorf Reconnaissance Service under a changing theme. The wants to inspire artists to take a critical look at religion and irrationalism. The nominated works will be presented to the public in a one-week exhibition in the Düsseldorf City Museum. Topic in 2020: ... does not work beyond the placebo effect!
2020 is about deceptive beliefs. Whether homeopathy and Bach flower therapy, religion or esoteric promises of salvation: pseudo medicine and religious belief can work. Thus, a prayer can convey strength and confidence that a medically ineffective drug can promote recovery. But these effects have nothing to do with the intervention of God / Yahweh / Allah, nor do they - in the case of homeopathy - result from the fictitious memory of the water. Rather, psycho social and cultural factors are responsible for these effects. And what also applies to globules always applies: no effect beyond the placebo effect.
