Curator´s Tour Life constantly escapes

SA, 06 03 2021, 1 – 2 pm, online
with Andrea Popelka


“Art may not be a space where material circumstances and living conditions transform, but it is perhaps a space that facilitates sensual and imaginative experiences. The exhibition Life constantly escapes is an invitation to toil towards a new perception, a de- and reconstruction of the world(s). It is an ode to imagination and dream, and a game with the senses.” (Andrea Popelka)


Inspired by theorists of the Black Radical Tradition and Black feminism such as Fred Moten and Denise Ferreira da Silva, guest curator Andrea Popelka brings together artists and poets who defy the modern logic and its violence and propose alternatives. Here, artists, art objects, and viewers are not seen as separate from one another, rather they become one – transcending time and space – on a sensual level.

The exhibition Life constantly escapes invites us to rethink the prevailing understanding of the world and to play with the new possibilities and imaginations that arise. On 06 03 2021 there will be a guided tour with the guest curator to tackle this together.


Artists & poets: manuel arturo abreu, Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge, Sean Bonney, Octavia E. Butler, Jesse Darling, Luna Ghisetti, James Goodwin, Grant Jonathon / HTMLflowers, Rohini Kapil, Kashif Sharma-Patel & Anuka Ramischwili-Schäfer, Ahya Simone and Bri Williams
