We are in this together, We are not one and the same - 2019

Collective installation by Mükerrem Tuncay, Romina Meriç and Hazel Ann Watling. Incorporating works by Nelly Monnier, Manon Harrois, Zeynep Beler and editions by Laura Pardini and Nadia Lichtig.

Situated between the exhilaration of scientific and technological advances on the one hand and the threat of climate change devastation on the other, the posthuman convergence encourages us to think hard and creatively about what we are in the process of becoming. Drawing on feminist, postcolonial and anti-racist theory, Rosi Braidotti argues that the human was never a neutral category but one always linked to power and privilege. Posthuman knowledge, as Braidotti understands it, is not so much an alternative form of knowledge as a critical call: a call to build a multi-layered and multi-directional project that displaces anthropocentrism while pursuing the analysis of the discriminatory and violent aspects of human activity and interaction where ever they occur. We quote her words as the title of this collective show.

‘We are in this together we are not one and the same’ is a residential installation where artists are invited to stay and work together for five days with the aim to create an exhibition. Each artist is invited to bring existing works to the residency or to make a site-specific work during the residency. The intention is to create a collective installation with several other artists. The installation process gives artists the freedom to mix their works with works of others making new combinations, or to choose a specific single presentation. The whole show acts under one title, and yet all elements  remain the work of each individual.
