Guided Tour through the exhibition Life constantly escapes

SA, 20 03 2021, 1-2 pm, online


The modern world as we know it since the Enlightenment, it is a specific historical construct, which has evolved over the centuries. At the heart of this world resides a specific white, patriarchal and capitalist idea of a human, an individual, a subject. It thrives off the violent power structures that it created.

But what if life would now and then evade the privatising categorisations of this world, and we could conceive it differently? Could we imagine other worlds and bring them to life? Could we learn to sense those alternative realities and forms of life, which are already there, smouldering under the surface?


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. The guided tour on 20 03 2021 provides insights into the artistic and poetic works of the exhibition.


Artists and 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
