Going through several lockdowns made clear, how essential collective experiences are for everyone. In response, "Liquidity" repeats a concept from 2018, but this time against the backdrop of (supposably) overcome social restrictions:

Social ties are established while drinking, people communicate and interact. The choice of drinks thereby also defines the relation of the participants among each other, while the rituals connected to them force the structure of the way of being together. The artists of the exhibition conceived and appropriated a variety of drinks, respectively formulated instructions on how to use them. What normally accompanies the communication, becomes the subject matter in this participative exhibition. In the tradition of relational aesthetics it transforms a conversation piece into a social sculpture – and the other way around.
