"What's with privacy when it's too loud outside" is a performative platform and installational frame built by Joannie Baumgärtner and Olivia Abächerli, that features works and artistic practices that attempt to overgrow a dichotomy between inside/ outside, intimate/ distant, private/ public. The exhibition space is constantly being altered – creating a situation where an intimate shelter is being constructed in the middle of an ongoing performative rave. A single night deals with questions of political accountability in private places and concealed practices. In the midst of this chaotic negotiation we are asking the question: What’s with privacy when it’s too loud outside?
