For the exhibition On the New the curatorial team of the Belvedere 21 invited around fourty-five artists and twenty-four exhibition spaces, hoast among others. The show runs from April 7, 2023 to January 14, 2024 in three parts with a partial exchange of the exposition in the middle of each spot. More information here. 

In their contribution to the exhibition, hoast questions the dynamics of the new. Do the Belarusian protests of 2020/21 lose significance once they fade from the media limelight? The artworks draw from experiences of violence and abuse of power, and, while bound within the context of their creation, often from some years ago, the pieces now take on new and unpredicted meanings with the changed political landscape.
