“Sleep as practice of resistance?”

Open Discussion with guests (in English), 31. March, 2011, 4 - 7 pm 

With this current exhibition Dump Time” project, we want to think about the unproductive, senseless, and mad dimensions of sleep and their effects on our daily life. The sleeping ego cannot be controlled. Thus, we say, sleep contains recalcitrant, and critical moments. A passive way of resistance though, rather distinguished by deprivation, failure, or disobedience than revolution. This thesis of the exhibition will be discussed with several guests and our audience.

With: Alexei Penzin (philosopher, Moscow), the artists Stefan Panhans (Hamburg), Johanna Domke (Copenhagen), Natalia Pershina (St. Petersburg), Ivan and Igor Buharov (Budapest), Alex Antener (Zurich/Berlin), Petra Elena Köhle/Nicolas Vermot Petit-Outhenin (Zurich) and the curators of the exhibition Yvonne Volkart and Anke Hoffmann.

And: The artists Ivan and Igor Buharov will all participants guide through a Dream-Yoga.
