F#%k U & ur DisNey World is a collective exhibition held at Super Dakota (Brussels), that showcases the extraordinary works of artists Math Bass, Baptiste Caccia, Sarah Derat, Cai Zebin, Aleksandra Domanović, Gareth Long, Isaac Lythgoe, Paul McCarthy, Real Madrid, Asha Schechter and Julia Wachtel, on view until June 6. This multi-media exhibition, influenced by an excerpt from cult documentarian Werner Herzog’s Encounters at the End of the World (2007), depicts the sociological and political tensions of the contemporary world, with a grimly humorous twist.

Disentangling and exposing issues such as the entertainment business, advertisement, bigotry, racism, and mass consumerism, they explain through Herzog's text that “Everyone feels like this little penguin, running away from the crowds, seeking for their places of belonging, saying a general fuck you to the patterns and mechanisms that participate in numbing the seriousness of what is going on in the world today.”

With everything from fictional sculptures created by Isaac Lythgoe, which analyse how the details of mythology and pop culture flirt with power, to Cai Zebin’s surrealistic paintings, the exhibit offers a labyrinth of humorous critique on sanitary issues, political schemes, and our complex relationship with capitalism and Western culture.
The exhibition F#%k U & ur DisNey World is currently on view at Super Dakota in Brussels, 45 rue Washington B – 1050 Brussels.
