Room O´clock Escaping repetitive Spaces

By projectNo Comments
Jeanne Astrup-Chauvaux, Oliver Gudzowski, Philipp Preiß In the past year, the contrasted feeling of having a fluid mind locked (down) in a static body, opened new horizons for dreams, highlighting their renewed importance in our daily lives, and even the possibility of their physical implementation in the spaces we know too well. Through this semi-fiction we decided to map personal strategies that we developed in the past months, and that helped us escape repetitive spatial and social situations. Through the use of fiction and physical  transformations of our surroundings, we explored dreamt spaces - which weren't that fictional in the...

The Glass Enclosure

By projectNo Comments
Yarden Cohen and Roi Dwek The digital space that replaces the physical one The glass enclosure is an instrument of representation, allowing us to express emotions during times of social distance through the physicality of the digital medium We can Imagine how we re-populate space that were captured empty during the lockdown “filling in the missing blanks” re-inhabiting movement.

Tapes in Corona

By projectNo Comments
Dorothée Gerling and Paloma Xenia We feel that these spaces made of tape feel like a limit to us. Our daily life in Berlin is currently limited by Corona. But this barrier also helps protect others and us. An experience that we didn’t know and had never experienced before. Now we wear masks in the supermarkets, on the shopping streets, on the train. By keeping our distance, we can no longer see family and friends as we used to. We have to be flexible in a different way . We don´t meet all in one place like the university, but we meet us in a virtual space. This...

Mariami Kurtishvili After the separation from the private and the work in my own flat proved to be difficult, I built myself a space of nothingness. There I can do everything or nothing undisturbed. In this process I would not only like to enter this space, but also to experience it. After staying there for a while, my thoughts turned more to what was happening outside.

And is it necessarily negative?...

Reading us Aloud Through Isolation

By projectNo Comments
Ivan Leroy In the short film Reading us Aloud Through Isolation, Ive tried to enlighten my growing connection to the humanoid objects populating my flat and the depth they give to my walls. While reading an extract of the book A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, I’m questioning the effect of words on my surrounding. In the film, you can briefly see me sitting at the kitchen table. But quickly the camera focuses on the divers objects, that I gathered along the years: George, an African mask, Bill, a trumpet playing statuette, a nameless drawing figure, a cast of my...

By project
Péter Máthé fem_arc · fem_arc STUDIO: Fragmentation Of The Calendar The pandemic is one of the biggest challenges our society had to deal with since I was born. At least in the sense that it is global, and only coordinated measures can fight it on the long term. To To shut down our economy, labour, transportation is one of them. Of course a lockdown is dangerous because certain social problems might under such circumstances intensify. Whilst for some this condition can even be enjoyable for a short period of time, for others it might be horrifying. In late 2020 human...
