Blur explored the fissures at which supposed polar opposites converge and where assumed dualities collapse. Taking off from the notion of hybridity as used in the field of genetics, Blur demonstrated how artists took it upon themselves to work outside the categories constructed by art history, criticism, art education, and in other ways that the art world attempted to make sense of their work. Going beyond the idea of fusing the arbitrary, hybridization here took into account notions such as deliberation, power, and positionality.
