Simone Aughterlony & Jen Rosenblit

Everything Fits In The Room

Part of the Festival “Utopian Realities – 100 Years of Now with Alexandra Kollontai”


60-90 min.

Aughterlony and Rosenblit navigate current forms of feminist politics ­beyond manifestos. Unpacking the phenomenology of utopias solicits the fear that all things will not fit in the imagined path. A free-standing wall sits in the middle of the room offering possibilities to adjust, fix and reattach materials. Crushed nutmeg and pine needles entice the senses. Rhythmic sorcery drives the effort to organize the ingredients, despite their un-governability. Is this a cooking show or a construction site? The room offers an expanded horizon, encouraging disruptive practices by way of leaks and cracks inside architectures for gathering.
