“How The Fuck Did I End Up Here” describes the post adolescent state of melancholia: the feeling of being lost while actually being very focused. And the state right before the age of having to define who you are and how what you do is who you are. The first retrospective in a state of flux: the exhilarating force of moving on in the world/a mission, a fear of loss in between random try and error success. The fear of revealing too much but wanting to participate, to be meaningful. Rehearsing success and foreshadowing what will be lost. Overwhelming nostalgia vs. knowing everything is always getting better.
Participating Artists: Alma Alloro, Jennifer Chan, Malte Bartsch, Valeria Drotskaja, Linda Franke, Flaka Haliti, Johannes Makolies, Thiago Parizi, David Schröder, Magnus Sönning
