Angela Schubot / Jared Gradinger

what they are instead of


ca. 60 min

How can we coexist? To say "I" means turning the other into a foreign entity. Can intimacy  embrace otherness to form a kind of common being? If our being extends beyond the limits of our skin can it reveal trace evidence of multiple ways of existing, symbiosis through belonging? How intimate can we be? Where does the surplus intimacy go? How much of our physical individualitiy is left at the end? How much debris of ego can I eliminate, and how much do I need? Angela Schubot and Jared Gradinger met nine years ago. In "what they are instead of" the two of them search for unconditional togetherness.
