13:00–15:00 Ringlokschuppen, Mülheim an der Ruhr, Toilette 1. Etage
Interactive Installation

When we step into harsh reality, and when our topics are crises, wars, artificial intelligence, and environmental protection, the question is what is the opposite of that? Where tenderness has disappeared. How do we establish balance in life, when we are overwhelmed by difficult topics?

zoe gudović: Tenderness from the Toilet!

That’s why it’s good to visit the Toilet installation, where together we create a gentle narrative, which can become a toilet manifesto, depending on our collective reflection. You can forget and switch off for 15 minutes, and get involved in something completely different, re-fresh, tender/nest.
