While the Covid-19 pandemic has changed our lives to various degrees, it has also built a sense of global community, of embodied shared experience of being exposed to a virus that knows no borders. Paradoxically, a deathly disease re-established a sense of shared world and shared response-abilities. Now, as large parts of our lives get “back to normal”, we need to think about how to be together in the world, which can bring such global cataclysms, where the climate crisis knocks on our door, where the precarity, instability and economic inequalities shape our daily experience. The sense of being in this together will persist, although right now we are perhaps most focused on how to liberate ourselves from constraints, on how to be free in a world of so many obligations. Therefore, I believe it is a good moment to discuss the texts of Butler and Bifo – both interested in how we stay together in the trouble , yet with the autonomy and potency to transform the status quo. Instead of guests, we co-host this last Coronaseminar with the curators of the reboot project. Please feel welcomed to participate in the discussion, and to make some plans for the future.

Co-hosts: Eva Birkenstock, Nikola Dietrich, Viktor Neumann
