The project’s first public events are an evening of performances, lectures and presentations about experiences of fear and/or hope, followed by an afternoon of discussions what hope and fear does and could do.

Tender Provocations of Hope and Fear 

17th June 20:00

Nordflügel, Gessnerallee, Zurich.  www.gessnerallee.ch

English and German, both with dual translation, as well as Swiss German Sign Language.

Join J&J for an evening of informal presentations, lecture, space making, music and performances from a selection of artists and non artists to tenderly provoke you.

Kim Noble is worried about hope. Fear fills his body when he thinks about it, because hope is just what he cannot bear. The Christian minister Reverend Janet Hephzibah Ashton addresses the dichotomy that in public she preaches that God’s all-encompassing love always gives hope, while privately her daughter’s illness makes her question this hope. Jeremy Wade presents the figure of ‘The Battlefield Nurse’, a prostitute, healer and midwife for the dying, who practices an eerie, bewitching and self-empowering version of care. the vacuum cleaner reports on his experiences of a reputedly ‘hopeless’ place, filled with fear: the high-security wing of an asylum for psychiatric criminals – and hopes to be able to talk about it. The event is spatially designed Gabriela Rutz and Ramin Mosayebi with additional contributions from Alina Dheere Babaletsos, Fai Baba (guitar, voice) & Domi Chansorn (percussion), and many more.
