The self-help community dispensary

“Building community is to the collective as spiritual practice is to the individual.”

by Grace Lee Boggs

 

The self-help community dispensary is a space to find healing, to practice self-care and care for the community – built by the many and made for the many. It is a pharmacy for togetherness, a place to heal, to sooth, to take care and mutually protect each other.

 

As a practice of community care the remedies will be made collectively in the course of the exhibition. A variety of remedies with different healing powers will be available. Visitors can take with them the healing remedy that they feel they need at the very moment.
The self-help community dispensary is a place that tends to the needs of the individual in order for the community to flourish.

 

The remedies will be made collectively on the 14th of November 2020.

 

Sign In here to help make the remedies.

 

With the voices of Melly Iyabo Reden, Muriel Scholl, Solina Sahli, Stéph and Tina Yemi Reden

Stéph

First and foremost she is a gardener.

Stéph’s field of dedication shifted from international political and economic systems to mycorrhizae systems, reoccurring patterns across all the biological kingdoms’ species and to designs of intelligence and remembering in other than human entities. After graduating in international relationships from the University of Geneva she is currently studying Environmental Engineering at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences.

 

Tina Yemi Reden

Tina explores polyphony, the role of active listening and the resulting entanglements, interdependencies and relationships. She’s interested in the moments of care needed when living in and listening to this abundance of connections, desires and interactions. She works with sound installations, rituals, storytelling or listening sessions as possible places for decolonial, queer feminist, and mindful practices – always trying to initiate intimate moments of being together. She studied at the Zurich University of Arts, the Rietveld Academie and the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam.

Contamination/Resilience

Hi-Intensity

The Impossibility of Living Without Each Other

 

Contamination means danger—and change: which systems and structures are currently in the process of dissolution? How do they change, and under which circumstances do they reappear in the current crisis? We bring in resilience as counter-image and counter-strategy. The pressing question of our time is: what makes communities and ecosystems resilient?

Contamination/Resilience gathers practices, theories, sci-fi-novels and artworks that pursue queer and eco-feminist ideas and stimulate a new way of thinking about the future. It is about sickness and care, as well as mutual support – and about reciprocal change.

Le Sang, Performance

In videos, performances, sets, installations and texts, Sabrina Röthlisberger addresses pain, sickness, medically induced liminal states, death, survival, recovery and the questionable “return to normal”. In the context of CONTAMINATION/RESILIENCE, her work opens up space and time to step into an underworld – looking at the world from the perspective of the sickbed, from assumed failure and weakness, it evokes the power of the powerless, other possible worlds and a dark erotic potential.

 

Sabrina Röthlisbergers installation in the Protozone will be activated by the artist in the first night with the live-performance “Le Sang”, that is based on her poetry book with the same title. Sabrina Röthlisberger developed “Le Sang” at the Centre d’art contemporain in Geneva, in collaboration with fellow artists Garance Bonard (music) and Tamara Alegre (choreography).

Radical
Sociability

24.10. 14-16

What started out as a vigilante strategy for bringing accountability to powerful people who had previously been immune to any consequences for their actions, is increasingly becoming an unreflective method for bullying within communities. Whether to call it call-out culture, cancel-culture or shaming-culture is hotly debated, but regardless of its name, by now its toxicity is undeniable.

 

Lou Drago has been investigating identity politic’s role in perpetuating what socio-political observers have called the “fracturing of the Left,” and cancel-culture’s role in deepening divides along identity-based lines. For this initial workshop, Drago will introduce their ideas around enacting intersectional affinity through a process called Radical Sociability, and through a series of exercises, speculate with participants on how to be receptive and humble in order to really enact solidarity.

 

Together participants will be invited to share experiences and ideas as to why the ‘Left’ have so readily taken up the oppressors’ tools, and how we might combat this to encourage solidarity and empathy instead of doing capital’s divisive work for it.

 

Limited number of participants, please register here.

Critical
Cam Girl
Reading
Group

24.10. 16-18

In her practice Ehrenstein focusses on the intersections of networked images, tech and migration. Material culture as well as science and technology studies are the basis of looking at representation and platform capitalism through a queer feminist, decolonial lens.

For the “Critical Cam Girl Reading Group” Anna Ehrenstein teamed up with “House of Tupamaras” .

Ehrenstein also worked within the Collective for “Tupamaras Technophallus” , the work cycle shown at “Protozone”.

The workshop has three parts. A start through collective reading of decolonial science, tech and post-humanist studies critique spiced up with femme empowerment poetics,

second; encouraging the participator to develop it’s absolutely new posthuman alter ego and

third (virtually tune) in “House of Tupamaras” to transform oral and written theory into embodied knowledge games and cam girl dances.

 

Please register for the workshop here, so that we know how many of you show up :)
