Unacknowledged Loss

Part of the project “Unacknowledged Loss” by Barbara Raes and HAU Hebbel am Ufer


English /  4 hours

How do we deal with grief and loss? Life could be seen as a series of “moments of transition”, large or small events which lead us through inevitable changes. The decreasing importance of traditional forms to celebrate rites and such moments of passage in life leads to a search for alternatives.

Barbara Raes deals in her own practice with the reanimation and new discovery of those rituals. In three filled weeks she will share her knowledge with eight Berlin-based artists, who were invited by HAU Hebbel am Ufer and will work and research on the topic “Unacknowledged Loss”. In this frame, the architect Wilfried Kühn will speak about ritual spaces and DeathLab invite to an open discussion on the relation of art and death. In the last two days of the process the artists present their works focusing especially on those moments of transition and loss.

Something to eat will be provided.
