“As part of the project Risk Change, the exhibition Shelters of Babylon tackles questions related to notions of being and existence. In this spirit, it is high time to revive some of the questions already addressed by existentialism, which advocated not only the individual’s freedom and the equality of all people and different social strata, but also the autonomy and the right of every man or woman to express themselves freely. And even if the times are now different, the context is becoming identical: survival.” – Peter Tomaž Dobrila
