DOOM - Down the Rabbit Hole

During the residency at thealit I deal with doomscrolling. I am mainly concerned with the oscillation between shallow distraction, personal banalities and insecurities and the mood of doom that arises on the basis of news streams and never-ending threatening developments.

My works do not provide answers to crises, but they react to that stream, which requires constantly reassessing one's relationship to oneself and one's (surrounding) world.My works are situated between defiance and panic, failure and despair. In the residency I would like to expand and deepen these works.

November, 9th from 6 pm
