The “transmundane” refers to that which extends beyond the physical or visible world – into the realm of the divine or transcendent. Recently, there has been an increased interest in accessing these otherworldly realms via mindfulness meditation, new age spiritual practices like magic and witchcraft, and the use of mind-altering drugs. These subjects are taken up by the artists in Transmundane, an exhibition which examines the root causes for this awakened interest in seeking the transcendent, and suggests that turning on, tuning in, and dropping out has a profoundly political dimension: when the world itself becomes unbelievable, we turn elsewhere for belief.
