In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, there seems a window between people, that is thin enough for one another to pass through it. Such a life did not bring us quietness. The to-do list is whispering to you while online meetings are mushrooming. Everything must go on. We long for passing time but the body is given the social value to be purposeful. What is the nature of living?
On the other hand, across the globe, countries are closing borders and asking citizens to stay home. In Europe, the most astonishing thing about the coronavirus pandemic is how easily borders can come back and that might not be the end of it. We might see a growing class conflict between rich and poor. Tensions between the industrial and the developing world, and between democratic and authoritarian states.
Feeling of tensions every day reveals how borders change our life in the post-COVID19 era. Such a change highlights the presence of every day and question how human conditions are reflected in their own lives through the perception of time in relation to systems of control. The exhibition becomes an exercise ground for imagination on how general political conditions cast a shadow on personal life in such a time. Are we getting ready for it? Do we have to get ready for it?
