The magazine Ausnahme_Zustände reflects, documents and gathers all events of our annual program 2022.
After two years of pandemic as well as in the face of numerous political, global conflicts and the ongoing climate crisis, space should be given to the dissonances of our time. Based on the view that crises can be overcome primarily through mutual exchange, the focus sharpened on projects centered on understanding, participation and mediation.
The exhibitions were supplemented by an extensive accompanying program of screenings, lectures, discussions and workshops. Questions concerning new ways of acting, social coexistence, migration and immigration as well as collective moments of exhaustion were discussed.
The publication includes contributions by the project participants from D21/Solo “And my mother says to me, enjoy your life” with works by Franziska Goralksi (Constanze Müller, Anastasia Svirski, Franziska Goralski & Ariane Graf), “Where is my karaoke? Still, we sing | ສຽງນິທານຂອງພວກເຮົາ | សូរសៀងនិទាននៃពួកយើ” (Phuong Phan & Sarnt Utamachote) and “Pose Fatigue” (Elisabeth Pichler, Anike Joyce Sadiq, Laurie Young). For the first time, there is also an artistic position on the annual theme. Therefore Artist Fabian Reimann created a picture essay.
With Magazine No. 3 we would like to retrospectively re-contextualize the realized projects, discourses and theoretical reflections that emerged within the year’s theme Ausnahme_Zustände and complement them with further artistic positions.
