Myths are stories that give us orientation and support as individuals and as a society. However the term "myth" also has a second meaning in modern linguistic usage: Unsubstantiated, misguided, or even dangerous convictions, belief systems, and ideologies. In our tour on "Myth-Building Mechanisms," we discuss artworks from the exhibition "Aus den Fugen – Momente der Störung 2" as the starting point for critical reflection on this dual quality of myths. In so doing, we both look at our individual, not always very rational thought processes, and critically question how major ideologies impact our thinking and behavior.

Marko Kovic is an author, lecturer, and podcaster. He addresses various aspects of social criticism.
