Projekt 78: MAREN RICHTER: HOW TO IMPROVE THE WORLD (YOU WILL ONLY MAKE MATTERS WORSE). VORTRAG IM SELBSTVERSUCH.
Loosely based on John Cage's experimental text of the same title, the curator Maren Richter tries to find out what it means to currently live in a time of a great planetary transition. How can we finally get rid of various 'posts' (post-fact, post-truth, posthuman, postnature) and be confronted with a new era that requires radically different parameters.In this liminal state with many unknown variables, can 'relationships' be re-assembled, rethought or created without the continuation of what is known? Artistic projects, many questions and probably too few answers....
Projekt 45:KLAUS SCHAFLER: HALFTIME IN COOLING JACKETS. DEMONSTRATION AND INSTALLATION.
A collage of short reports and fictions on inoculated clouds, chilled cows and staged volcanic eruptions as a preview of possible general weather conditions of tomorrow. In seven sequences, images, props and stories from the world of the increasingly heated planet are presented and installed. From ambivalent laboratory and field tests of a cooling off and a future on the edge of reality.
