as part of
The Exhaustion Project: There is Still Work to be Done
In our increasingly privatized present, exhaustion has become weaponized by state and other actors to control labouring and resisting bodies. The Exhaustion Project attempts to examine the relationship between labour, care, and the exhausted body, and produce propositions that recode these relationships. Central t this is the understanding of body as multitude, challenging its unitarity, and proposing a body that is not one, thus also inserting into processes of becoming an alternative cosmological imagination.
Curated by Abhijan Toto, mentored by David Elliott, artists include Eglė Budvytytė, Jessika Khazrik, Anna Ridler, Alisa Chunchue, and Sarah Naqvi and Chandrakant Chitara.
The Exhaustion Project is supported by the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Mondriaan Fund, the Lithuanian Culture Institute, the Goethe -Institut London, the Goethe-Institut Max Mueller Bhavan Kolkata, the Goethe-Institut Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai, the British Council, and IMPAKT as part of the European Media Art Platform programme funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
