Discussion and exchange




Cargo: Discourse programme on working environments and logistics takes place as part of In Search of Fullfillment - A repair and transformation project on fast fashion, online logistics and the search for happiness.


Following the successful kick-off in Berlin (2023), the multi-year project by Lisa and Wilfried Prantner (Bis es mir vom Leibe fällt) will stop at Mariahilferplatz, where an original-sized articulated lorry sculpture made of used textiles will continue to be woven, tufted and sewn. Practical workshops will take place around and in connection with this. In addition, lectures, readings and performances will explore the question of what "fulfilment", the online retail process, has to do with fast fashion, waste production and happiness. To what extent this "fulfilment" is the epitome of our wasteful way of life and whether it brings fulfillment or needs to be thoroughly reworked.


15.05.–31.05.2024 Mariahilferplatz


23.05.-27.05.2024 Discourse programme at the Volkskundemuseum, Kunsthaus Graz, AAI - Afro-Asian Institute and other locations.
