About the product

What drives us, where do our fears and cravings manifest? The figure of the vampire—and its main drive, thirst—stands pars pro toto for these questions and as a mirror of mechanisms at work in our society. The dictate of productivity forces us to feed the system with our own vitality: a thirst that can never be satisfied, for every temporary appeasement only produces a new desire. This liquid nature of our time and its transformative potential are the focus of the exhibition “DURST”. The presented artistic positions explore vampirism as a broad semantic field and reveal its essential characteristics.

With Inka ter Haar, Lauren Huret, Céline Manz, Alexandra Meyer, Sarah Rechberger, Katharina Swoboda, Anne Cathrin Ulikowski, curated by Alice Wilke.
