What is "solidarity"? This should be an easy thing to answer. Since the rise of the Covid-19 pandemic few words have been as excessively used as this one.
Yet, if you start asking around, everybody will give you a different definition. It doesn't seem to be clear at all how people feel about "solidarity". It rather seems to be a phantom: the more you talk about it, the less strongly it shows in action. So how can we work on and in solidarity without killing its magic?
This research project originated from one of us being in need and continued to exist for the sake of making international collaboration happen despite all odds. It's artists supporting artists and together finding fragments of the bigger picture, what solidarity means to us and how we've experienced it in the past 12 months.
Join us online for the live stream from Kulturhaus Helferei Zurich on April 8th at 20h CEST (Basel, Belgrade, Johannesburg) / 21h EEST (Beirut).
You'll enjoy readings, video art, artists talk and a concert.
