The End As Interlude

With Jota Mombaça a.o.

Part of “A Melancholic Melody / A Will To An End – a Series of Works by Ligia Lewis”


“The End as Interlude” was originally planned as part of the cancelled “A Melancholic Melody / A Will To An End – A series of works by Ligia Lewis”. Instead of speaking on the stage of HAU2, the artist and theorist Jota Mombaça has now written a text that we will publish in three episodes on HAU3000. Based on world events in times of the Corona pandemic, Mombaça conceives a diffuse future, one in which borders, escape and freedom of thought play a central role.
The End As Interlude, Episode 1: The Silent Earthquake
The End As Interlude, Episode 2: Energy Bending
The End As Interlude, Episode 3: Interlude
