With the support of the SüdKulturFonds. and Gessnerallee Zurich.
We are here is acceptance and denial at the same time. The project revolves around the impact Covid-19 is having on artistic collaboration about the uncertainty and inability to deal with a global pandemic. We are here is an attempt to accept one's own inability and to try out what possibilities still open up within the security measures. In this context, 8 artists tried to come together. Half of the team has chosen to be physically present in Zurich, while the other half stays where it is.
We are here is an attempt to work with two frames of possibilities and impossibilities. While some of the artists who are in Zurich are in quarantine and work from there, the artists will work and connect from their home bases.
