The pandemic is over, the crises continue. We would just love to stay at home and pull the blanket over our heads. Even after most contact restrictions have been lifted, the theater halls remain a yawning void. Sorry, we got stuck watching Netflix.

The Bremer special edition of »Kein schöner Archiv« is dedicated to private and institutional domesticity. Many people have withdrawn to the safe space of privacy. At the same time, the public spaces of discourse are becoming increasingly contested. In theaters and museums, it is mainly privileged people who make themselves comfortable, those who have always had it cozy. What does that imply for the cultural struggles and pillow fights of the future? »Kein schöner Archiv« invites the audience to a lecture performance in the mattress gap of dominant culture. An evening dedicated to wellness and prosperity, self-care and social justice.

Nuray Demir works as an artist, performer and choreographer. Recently, she presented the performance »Semiotiken der Drecksarbeit« at HAU Hebbel am Ufer. Michael Annoff works with performance and ethnography. Together, they develop performative formats in the visual and performing arts, but also in museums of history, design and natural history. Since 2018, they have been documenting the immaterial heritage of the post-migrant society in the long-term project »Kein schöner Archiv«. In 2022/23, they are artists-in-residence at the Bundeskunsthalle.
