The exhibition Rough Sleep presents photographs and a photo book by a group of female artists: Katharina Brandl, Violeta Ivanova, Madeleine Schrabauer and Karla Woess.

The photographs document a series of sleep performances that deal with social issues such as the acceleration of daily life, the regulation of public space and our achievement-oriented society.

In order to bring the constant acceleration to the fore, the artists stage their sleep performances in heavily frequented locations. Sleeping is also seen as a form of resistance against an increasingly competitive society and individuals who are only concerned with self-optimization.

A series of interventions takes place in locations that were formerly meant to invite pause and lingering or locations where it is no longer possible to sit or sleep for long periods of time. Rough Sleep is a long-term project; a sleep photo book documents and theoretically complements the project.

Opening: 26.03.2019, 7 p.m.

Participating artists: Katharina Brandl, Violeta Ivanova, Madeleine Schrabauer, Karla Woess
