Around the world, many existing democracies are in a crisis: freedoms and options for political participation are being restricted or their use is declining. This guest-curated exhibition takes the vulnerability of the basic democratic order in current systems as a starting point and illuminates problem areas such as burgeoning right-wing populism around the world, the mediatisation of politics, the tension between inclusion and exclusion in decision-making processes, new forms of political participation, and the relationship between extra-parliamentary protest and official politics.
