Curatorial statement
In these times of the pandemic many people become aware of the restrictions of the “usual”. Those things which were taken for granted before receive suddenly an unusual status. Time seems to be paralyzed, set in quarantine – or is it just a paradigm shift?

Karin & Didi Fromherz, Ronnie Sluik, Jason Jenn, Alexandra Anikina, Brit Bunkley, Johannes C.Gerard, Louise Coetzer, Arie & Ben David Sigal, Lisi Prada, Shahar Marcus & Hagit Großman, Farid Hamedi, Vojislav Radovanovi?, Katya Yakubov
