CURATORIAL STATEMENT

BODY OF US
— The Swiss contribution to the 2018 London Design Biennale (4 to 23 September) consists of a physical installation and an audio piece in Somerset House, as well as of a publication and a website. It is an exercise in and a reflection on friendly relationships – elective, messy, open-ended and in constant flux, as are the emotions they generate – as potentially emancipatory connections. The project explores forms of togetherness that are able to challenge the broadly accepted norms, binaries and conditions of contemporary working and living environments, and modes of political, institutional and economic governance.
