Social regulation. Standardization. Normalization. These and related social processes are responsible for creating contingent sets of rules and determining situations that we refer to as ânormalâ. Even though in our daily lives we take ânormalityâ for granted, it is merely a product of social consensus, and as such subject to change. Through her research-based art Paula Muhr investigates
arbitrary concepts related to various historical and contemporary notions of normality and reveals the mechanisms of their construction. Simultaneously, she approaches the topic of normality from an additional, theoretically informed perspective, by conducting academic research on hysteria and brain imaging.
