In which areas of life do we repeatedly come up against the limits of socially accepted behavior? And can we find strategies to break those boundaries? HARTMANN and MUELLER ask themselves this question – this time separately. Each with a separate solo. MUELLER is all about being different, about the connection between the materiality of individual body identities and socially constructed gender roles. The body undergoes transformations – it is conserved, dissected, reassembled and extends far beyond the binary categories of “man” and “woman.” HARTMANN deals succinctly and yet existentially with failure. While the method “Trial and Error” has proven itself in science, it is not very socially accepted to miss a target. But what applies to science should apply all the more to art.- that is the motto of HARTMANN.
