Daniel Hellmann, Layton Lachman & Anne Welenc

Was geschieht, wenn aus Zweisamkeit Dreisamkeit wird? ›ALL IN‹ beschäftigt sich mit triadischen Liebesbeziehungen, in welchen sich drei Menschen in der Konstellation eines Dreiecks begegnen. Zu dritt zu lieben hinterfragt so gut wie alles, was wir über Liebe zu wissen glauben und erfordert von den Beteiligten, sich auf ein neues Terrain zu begeben, wo es nur wenig Erfahrungen und Vorlagen gibt, auf die sie zurückgreifen können.

Sophia New & Daniel Belasco Rogers (plan b)

During their residence at PACT Zollverein Sophia New & Daniel Belasco Rogers (plan b) continue their project ›Taxonomy of Togetherness‹ (working title). Together they think about how the terms "togetherness/together" and "separated/removed" can be defined today - in a digital age. As a basis for these considerations they use a GPS recording, which shows exactly where the artists have been in the last 10 years.
