In Mathematics the difference between rational and irrational numbers is described by the criteria of finiteness. In art the question of the boundary can be formulated in a different way:

Where is the boundary between rationality and irrationality? How thin is the line between behaviour that we generally consider ‘normal’ and that of people who dance on the verge of social acceptance? The six artists that curator Valerie Smith has brought together for their first exhibition at the House of World Cultures explore psychological states of emergency that take them to the limits of logic and to new perceptions of reality.

The curator, Valerie Smith, gives an audio introduction to each of the artists of the her first exhibition at the House of World Cultures. There is a video version too.
