NEWS     









THE GYM is a hybrid place that interlaces exhibition, performances, lectures and trainings.
The project is understood as an alternative approach towards stereotypical body cultures,
market-conform standardization and other shapes of neoliberal-based self-optimization.
THE GYM is a space for progress, regeneration and awareness. In doing so, THE GYM trains and
celebrates our bodily and mental resistance and resilience in the sense of a pleasurable
activism; it calls on us to take back our bodies and minds, individually and collectively. In
their artistic practice, the participating artists, trainers, performers and thinkers look for
strategies and logics of resistance, to break up prevalent power structures, disrupt and
challenge mechanisms of perception.

THE GYM is a production by PARTNER IN CRIME and is curated in close collaboration
between Mirabella Paidamwoyo Dziruni, Betül Seyma Küpeli, Johannes Maile and Petra Poelzl.
