Ritual of the Hydra
13.03 – 13.05.2023
"Mankind will more or less die out in 2222. Almost everything will be destroyed. Only some ruins, stories and a book by Édouard Glissant remain. Around the year 3333, the population of humans has grown again to a few tens of thousands. They build their communities based on this book by Glissant–because it is all that was left. I have friends in 3333. They wrote me a letter and sent some objects, drawings and pictures."
As an artist and experimental spatial designer, Torben Körschkes searches for new languages, dialects, rituals, mythologies and politics in arrangements of stories, materials and people.
