Caner Teker

Masc babies on a comedown. It’s as if those boys’ eyes, wrists and rectums were linked to each other with tight yet elastic strings, interchangeably bringing them closer and further apart, spilling out of all night and day long choreographies of the dance floor, the bathroom and the dark room. No to sass, no to camp, no to virtuosity, no to the seduction of the spectator by the wiles of the performer, yes to psychoactive dramaturgies, yes to expression and non-resemblance, yes to cold intimacies, yes to children’s games, yes to always wanting more.

Rupture [1]

Nele Ruckelshausen

In a near future, an unprecedented global earthquake has ruptured the surface of the planet. As the seismic crevasses become subject of scientific investigation, spiritual exploitation, and limp-handed propaganda efforts by the government, two unlikely platonic lovers embark on an epic road trip across the disintegrating European continent. When a light brown slime starts oozing from the cracks, strange events begin to transpire. Before long, humanity will be forever changed...

I inch closer, exhale chalk, size you up. I etch along the lines in your cheeks, rearrange your features, predict dissonance. Can you taste the metal?

Clothes are a signal of belonging, costume is a token of a scene. But truly how far does our first-person plurality extend? And what's even healing about participation?

In the future, there will be no genres or genders. There will be no distinction between theory and praxis, between given and made, between real and fake. Art will be text and text will be painting and painting will be fashion. What’s left to do than to embrace the total dissolution of culture? A guide for beginners.
