To accompany the exhibitions Atlanten — Ich oder das Chaos and Ever/​Repair, we would like to establish a reading group to address the questions posed by the current exhibitions: What and how can we learn from history? How do we want to live together and what do we need to do in order to achieve this? How are these connections exemplified in the artistic positions of the exhibition?

The starting point will be a joint discussion on Sigmund Freud’s Why War? (1932) and Sylvia Wynter’s Maskarade (1970). Both texts, each of which is directly or indirectly connected to the exhibition, are intended to encourage reflection beyond the exhibitions, but also to bring them into dialogue with each other.
