Hello, in this rather … bumpy spring we are especially happy about the good news.
In autumn, the exhibition “Mercury Rising – Inter* Hermstory[ies] Now and Then” will open at SMU Berlin.

Together with Luan Pertl, Ins A Kromminga, Ev Blaine Matthigack and Sylvia Sadzinski we are planning the first exhibition in the history of Schwules Museum Berlin that deals artistically and historically exclusively with Inter* issues.

The vernissage is planned for mid-October. The countdown is on, champagne & seltzer are chilled!

We have already started working on the project and would therefore like to send you an Open Call. The answers to the call will form the starting point for one of the central installations – a ceiling fresco.

In the attachment we ask “Would you tell us five things / conditions / feelings / objects / thoughts or role models that are important to you for Inter*Utopia?”

Because Inter*Utopia is what it’s all about, the Call is directed to all Inter*, inter* people, intersex people.
More information about the Open Call can be found in the attachment.

We are very happy about the cooperation with the artistic and curatorial team – it’s such an honour! Working with the SMU makes us happy, too – not only since “TRIAL and ERROR” and thanks to your great participation in our live events in 2019/2020.

For “Mercury Rising” we have come up with a lot for you … it will be sparkling and starry.
All the best until then.
Don’t let things get you down.
