Everything begins with a feeling. At first vague, shadowy and undefined. Bit by bit, a development begins. Signs of change become noticeable. Sensory impressions are processed. The invisible is made visible and familiar conditions are rediscovered. A living archive. Not a superficial glance, but a close look is required. The perception of fragile details is characteristic for the contents, which the artists treat in their works. The living is registered and inscribed anew. Everyday things are archived and questions about life in a society are raised.
Is it possible to get out of this system? How can we bring about change? Can approaches to a new world be whispered into our minds through artistic interventions?
Our current society has long outgrown the “pigeonholes” that have been imposed on us- in the past. If the audience dares to experiment and engage with the content of the work, new thought-provoking impulses are possible.
