Exhibition Opening Unterwerfungen

with a Lecture Performance by Susanne Sachsse (Cheap Collective)
Dec 12, 2022

In the lecture performance entitled “Well, a fresh breeze with words and gestures”, the artist, performer, and musician Susanne Sachsse confronts asynchronicity, subtraction, gaps, and unlearning, posing the question: Who or what is this talking, when the talk is about me?
