At this moment, we make time for “timing-out”. In the middle of our five year endeavor PROTOZONES 2020-2025 we take some time to gather and reflect on our curatorial practice. As part of this, we invite collaborators who are already in the process of preparing contributions for future Protozones. All together, we wish to create a common space of gathering, inviting you for workshops, games, screenings and food.
We are looking forward to spending this time together with you. Lucie Tuma, Michelangelo Miccolis, Phila Bergmann & Thea Reifler.

The effects of climate change as well as of war are impacting not only the worldwide supply with fossil fuels but also very basic food supply, especially in the global south. Proto-Club3 responds to the current crisis by bringing together two artistic perspectives on the complex question of how to treat and preserve food as our basic resource of survival.

Proto-Club2 (be)longing immerses us in the intimate and poetic sound – and visual worlds of four artists whose practices are deeply interwoven with queer concerns. Their works radically expand the horizon of possible representations and ideas of bodies, relationships and worlds. The people and mythical beings that appear in them resist suppression and insist on the possibilities of the present, change and queer futures.

Self-isolation is an additional intimate discrimination against the elderly, the sick, and singles. But there is intimacy that doesn’t need touch, and there are ways to touch safely. Just as people developed an understanding of “safe sex” in response to the AIDS crisis, we now have to learn and promote “safe touch.”
