9th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art

You exist online, yet your ass still hurts and grinds.
Whenever you feel closest to „you,“ you’re actually in drag.
Your dataset is like the feelings you don’t always act on.
You practice mindfulness but you are in deep debt.
You know that your 60-hour work week is someone else’s four.
Your self-driving car crashes but you are held liable.
In this age of total speculation, you can’t even see a present from which to imagine a future.
You would seriously consider moving to Berlin.
You wonder in no particular order: Are we at war? Will Trump be the next US president? Do I like Shakira?
You’re a discerning consumer of culture but you know that none of this will last.
