The exhibition Dark Night of the Soul presents the work of a group of visual artists, whose work is characterized by increased sensitivity to the current social situation. The exhibit tries to capture the ubiquitous feelings of anxiety, insecurity, and disorientation caused by frustration stemming from the inability to influence the reality of a collapsing world. Feelings that lead us to a state of helplessness and stagnation, which is, however, an integral part of a process that we are not yet able to see from a longer-term perspective. The name of the exhibition also refers to this state. It returns to the phrase that appeared in the sixteenth century in the literary work of the Spanish saint John of the Cross.
