EUROPE IS LOST | collaborator & performer
audio play by Heike Bröckerhoff
Europe is lost is an artistic research project that tackles the question of how we can move through moments of crisis together, focusing on emotional implications and strategies of empowerment. In collaboration with female artists and researchers from all over Europe, a series of experimental audio plays about hope, nostalgia, adaptation, denial, and post-identitarian belonging will be developed. In an eco-feminist, post-humanist spirit, we use fiction and historical research to re- invent narratives and practices of solidarity.

Shared Stories is a safe place for artists to share ideas and develop strategies on how to cope with the intimate experience of loneliness and void. Moreover, we ask ourselves to what extent is being an artist and making art connected with these states of depression. The inspiration for our discussions and artistic try-outs are lives and works of deceased female artists Virginia Woolf, Francesca Woodman, Chantal Akerman, Sarah Kane, Dore Hoyer and Sylvia Plath. Using the artistic method of developing collective and group storytelling and narrative - yet being devoted to one's own personal way of expression such as installation, body and movement, word and sound - we are also looking for a way to expend this approach in the comprehension of intimate feelings of sadness and emptiness and to see them as a shared experience rather than an individual one.
