Voices Offstage

by Monika Gintersdorfer, Jeewi Lee, Sybille Peters, Nora Sdun, Boris Sieverts & Raul Walch

In these times of social distancing, curfews and closed borders, six voices from the world of art have considered certain questions: What impact have these changed conditions had on urban space, public life and the community? How can we create a transfer between our interior and exterior spaces? Or is it precisely the divorce between inside and outside that offers an opportunity to draw positive aspects from the pandemic?

The Voices:

Boris Sieverts – Fairground without the Fair
Jeewi Lee – 33°31’40.0"N 7°48’15.8"W
Sybille Peters – Assemblies in Crisis
Nora Sdun – Rambling in the Mind
Raul Walch – Art in the Time of Cholera
Monika Gintersdorfer – ensemble / together
