Open Futures is a place to meet and experiment together – a place of experience, a celebration and many dinners. Starting November 10, an exhibition, talks, performances, workshops, walks, as well as a Sunday market, will take place in our partner houses, the Shedhalle, the Gessnerallee and the Tanzhaus. The focus is on dialogue, being with each other, experimenting and thinking about sustainability. Sustainability concerns our relationships with each other and with the overarching ecosystem, and is therefore best experienced in communities.
At the center of the cooperation with Shedhalle, Gessnerallee and Tanzhaus is a research phase for five artists and artist groups from the fields of dance and visual arts. For two to three weeks, the artists investigate practices of sustainability in dialogue with the audience. They explore what artistic research can contribute to social sustainability and how sustainable and social practices can in turn enrich artistic practice.
The process-based exhibition “Kollektive Resonanz” is dedicated to questions of sustainability and its collective, social as well as cultural dimensions. The approaches range from Romy Rüegger’s historical examination of the history of textile production to the current living situation of migrants in Zurich (Club La Fafa). The works shown are dedicated to open, sometimes fragile, uncertain futures. Many are designed to engage with audiences through performances, public research formats, workshops and diaspora talks. More works and traces will emerge as the exhibition progresses.
