The exhibition Do Nothing, Feel Everything was first presented at Kunsthalle Wien (18.11. 2021 ‚Äď 24.4. 2022). Kunsthalle Bratislava is re-staging the exhibition in its new updated version. The title of this group exhibition is originally borrowed from a commercial for tampons, except that the original slogan read: ‚ÄúDo Everything. Feel Nothing.‚ÄĚ This promise of numbness is more than symptomatic of our times, but the attempt is, through the inversion of the slogan, to express‚ÄĒapart from demanding a different pace of life‚ÄĒa need for a different kind of space and time framework, in which it might be possible both to feel intensely and to process the emotional impact of what we all witness around us, following the temporality of the ‚Äúnever-ending end of the world‚ÄĚ. Currently, every crisis, every catastrophe, every threat is instantly overridden by another. This state of constant emergency, often translated into apathy and exhaustion, makes passing through coherent stages of emotion impossible and makes us realize that our physical and mental well-being is not an individual matter anymore but that we were sharing a state of insanity before we even knew we were insane. The works in this exhibition examine and present a wide range of affects, ambitions, and risks. Do Nothing, Feel Everything thus looks into art practices that understand insanity as a common condition and as a dynamic form of knowledge with something crucial at stake‚ÄĒart practices that, through careful bruising, find ways to soothe and to bear. Exhibiting artists: Rastislav Bibza / Christoph Bruckner / Tony Cokes/ Patricia Dom√≠nguez / Rahima Gambo / Jakob Jakobsen/ Niklas Lichti / Shana Moulton / Tom Seidmann-Freud / Anna Zem√°nkov√°
