Will I still perform tomorrow?
24 Nov 2023–7 Jan 2024
What happens when our individual life goals meet with predictions and dystopias that forecast an end to the world as we know it? Do we stick to our plans all the same and carry on as usual? Which future speculations actually affect our everyday lives, determine what we decide to do tomorrow or in five years’ time? Work and family, saving, travelling and partying – a seemingly endless cycle.
In contrast to macro-scale future scenarios, the exhibition Will I still perform tomorrow? revolves around personal visions of the future, shaped by desires and fears, by the constraints and demands of capitalist performance society. The narratives range from departures to strategies of refusal. Or, in other words: the exhibition looks at, for example, what makes young people go to school four days a week, rather than what makes them strike on Fridays – the suggestion being, that one cannot be separated from the other.
The Regionale is an annual group exhibition developed in the context of a cross-border cooperation of 20 institutions in Germany, France, and Switzerland with a focus on local contemporary art production in the three-country region around Basel.
