Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin. About the book: In the mid-90s in Massachusetts: Sadie, a highly talented computer science student and budding computer game designer, meets her former Super Mario partner Sam again at a subway station. The two start working on a game together, and it soon becomes clear that they are a good team, not only as friends but also creatively. But when their first computer game together becomes a hit, rivalries emerge that seem to threaten their bond. A decade-spanning novel about pop culture and creativity, daring and failure, loss and the magic of friendship.

Workshop
Collecting and archiving as an artistic practice • With Aline Schwörer
Sat 2 Mar 12 pm
Collecting, assembling, archiving - aspects that reflect scientific and artistic practice. Found objects are taken from their "natural" environment and thus acquire a value; they become collectors' objects, artworks. In the workshop, we let our eyes wander, explore our immediate surroundings, and look out for things that we subsequently preserve in epoxy resin and add to our own private collection. The perception of our environment in an urban and hectic environment is the first and at the same time most important step for the creation of art.
(To cover the material costs, we charge a small contribution towards expenses of €7 per participant)

Finissage
Sat 23 Mar 2 – 6 pm
 


The new day begins in the middle of the night. When we wake up in the morning, there is this brief moment in which memory still seems absent and only the feeling of expectation is present. It is fleeting and, in case of doubt, will never be fulfilled - yet this one-sided promise of a truth that has not yet arrived forms an essential cornerstone of human resilience.

Important philosophers have tried to establish applicable rules for promises. Immanuel Kant argued that promises should always be kept, while some consequentialists argue that promises should always be broken when doing so would bring benefits. In contrast to Kant, some Rossians hold that morality cannot be fixed in terms of right and wrong. In certain circumstances, it may be more advantageous to break a promise than to keep it.

This exhibition moves along these moral principles, while the works on display express, promise or break promises for a better present than the current one in various ways.

The examination of Viktor Petrov's installations suggests foggy, associative fragments of memory. Aline Schwörer's sculptures deal with the exploitation of the biosphere, the 'body of the earth' and its living creatures. Through the interplay of man and machine, technology and emotions, Raphaël Fischer-Dieskau's work evokes a visceral reaction in the viewer as a multi-sensory experience. Sofiia Yesakova's drawings depict rupture and the pain associated with loss. Polina Shcherbyna's artistic practice is on the one hand filled with horror and powerlessness in the face of the dark side of humanity, but at the same time it also manifests a confidence in the future. Kim Bode's artistic endeavors and radical practice deal with the complicated web of precarious living conditions and the multi-layered perspectives of social struggles in threatened and endangered environments. PY Koller explores possible future scenarios that future generations will face. Göksu Baysal examines various facets of human existence.The interplay arises through an interdisciplinary engagement with the material he collects during travels and research. In his expansive installations, these materials are brought together in ephemeral and narrative constellations.
