The exhibition of Hamja Ahsan, the recipient of the Grand Prize of the 33rd Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts, is on display at the ZVKDS Gallery as part of the exhibitions and events of this year's Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts, ISKRA DELTA.

We are kindly inviting you to join us on a guided tour of the exhibition with curator Yasmín Martín Vodopivec.

The solo exhibition entitled I DON'T BELONG HERE أنا لا أنتمي الى هنا offers a glimpse into the beginnings and development of the artist's Shy Radicals project, through which Ahsan and his followers are fighting against the dominance of extroversion, a culture of hypersociality and violent positivity. Featuring historical artefacts, revolutionary iconography, never-before-seen photographs, first-person narratives by enthusiasts of the movement, the exhibition shows how the Shy Radicals project has succeeded in penetrating the crazy and largely dislocated standardised world, constantly bypassing truth and fiction, without losing its speculative core.
