Inconvenient Questions & Unreasonable Posters: An Exhibition About Freedom, Critical Thinking, Democracy, Civilization, and the Right to Laugh

Meta-Culture is hosting a poster exhibit in Adams Morgan in DC starting on May 3, 2019 at La Pop. If you want to attend the opening on May 3, go here. More about Meta-Culture is below.

Meta-Culture envisions living in a caring and pluralistic society that strives to manifest the complex and seemingly conflicting values of empathy, critical thinking, dialogue, constructive debate, continuous learning and negotiation of differences. In this society all people, regardless of their biological or cultural affiliations, are vital stakeholders with the right and capacity to participate honestly and with deliberation in the public space without fear or favor. We believe that such a society would be genuinely democratic, i.e., one governed by the people themselves, where all have the right to engage actively in decision-making either through representatives or directly– even if the laws confer voting rights only to legal citizens. Most of all, it is a society that holds itself to the highest standards of caring, reasonableness, generosity and rigorous, clear thinking.
