NO!where toGO?

 ... therefore I am looking for true stories, equally speculative fabulations and speculative realisms . Donna Haraway

 The impact of the measurements against the spreading of Covid 19 were likely to become reverberated to oneself and to change our perception of time and space.

How did we change in relating to inner and outer spaces? What ongoing changes in public space were triggered by these recent events? Do we have to prepare for further restrictions as Covid 19 infections are on the rise again? Or can our daily life unfold without related limitations? What do these experiences mean in both a personal and the contexts of society? What are the chances for transformation we can find in these situations?

How to think about new urban ecologies under the current conditions?

Who are our known and (maybe still) unknown companions from the animal kingdom

Sharing the neighbourly spaces with us? How to get in touch and what kind of relations can be developed?

Which concepts are offering potentials to articulate ourselves in performative, physical, mediated ways? Which are possible translations between analog approaches and formats and their mutation into digital ones?

We will let ourselves accompany by texts of Donna Haraway and Boyana Kunst
