This week you can enjoy a couple of exhibitions, a panel discussion, dance classes, and an award ceremony – in Berlin or online. Have fun!
In her participatory art project How Does It Feel?, artist Hannah Santana invites patients to customize and paint on hospital gowns; using them as a canvas to express their emotions. SomoS is proud to present a selection of the works.
Santana’s installation of the gowns in the gallery, floating from the ceiling, gives the artworks an intimate, poetic and pensive aura. The presence of the feelings and thoughts expressed on these smocks is emotionally impactful. The dedication that these current or former patients have put in the personalization of the gown stands in strong contrast with the common standards of hospital care. The handwriting, the thoughts and words of the patients transform the gowns and give a voice to the invisible traces of the everyday life of disease.

This conversation brings together artists and cultural workers to reflect on strategies to survive during times that do not allow for an audience or community to come together in a physical space. With shows and performances cancelled indefinitely, how are we as a creative community coping? How can we support each other collectively? What are our plans for the future? How does the current moment affect our creative practice? The discussion is open for the public to ask questions, contribute ideas, and interact with the speakers.
