Description

We are tired. Despite the crisis, the pandemic state of exception, we have had to continue to work, and work – even as significant parts of our lives were put on hold. Our bodies are exhausted; we can‘t take any more.

This exhibition investigates the present-day relation between work, love and exhaustion. In collaboration with the dancer Laurie Young, Anike Joyce Sadiq has developed sculptures that both support and allow exhaustion. They are an imprint, an invitation, and at the same time an homage to tired bodies. During the exhibition period, Konstanze Schmitt will come into contact with the neighbourhood around Frankfurter Tor. As part of a performative research process, she engages with post/pandemic relations between the labour of love and the state of exhaustion.

What kinds of linkages exist between social inequalities and our various states of exhaustion? How do these influence our relationships? Are there forms of (self) care and relational work that can withdraw from capitalist appropriation, or resist it?

Love and Exhaustion is the third part of the exhibition series MY WORKING WILL BE THE WORK. on self/care, labour and solidarity curated by Linnéa Meiners and Jorinde Splettstößer.
