Uns stehen paradiesische Zeiten bevor. In 20 Jahren ist die Hälfte der Menschen von Arbeit freigestellt und erhält ein Grundeinkommen. Wir haben genügend Zeit, all unseren Interessen nachzugehen. Endlich alles verwirklichen, woran uns die Erwerbsarbeit immer hinderte…
Im Menschenpark 2038 erleben wir unseren ersten Tag in einer arbeitsfreien Gesellschaft.
Eine Versuchsanordnung, ein Experiment. Was wirst du tun, wenn die Zukunft dir Freiraum gibt?

The project ‘Topoi Withdrawn’ will examine the Topoi of withdrawnness by investigating a place that instigates withdrawnness, Chalk Hill. Not without reason one famous ancient Greek topo is Arcadia, that is mostly described by it’s stunning nature, and seems to resemble descriptions of paradise.
The theme of nature and withdrawnness has inspired many authors, or touched their works, for example the novel, The Wall, by
Marlen Haushofer. By cutting out society as a constant surrounding, the main character leads what seems to be a quite physically exhausting but fulfilling life in nature.
Are we more fulfilled when we are by ourselves in nature, or do we struggle? Is the dream of fulfilling solitude in nature a myth, or which part of it is, and which part not?
Where are we, when we are withdrawn, how much of it is an inner state, or is it defined solely by our environment?
What is withdrawn art, and is art not always created withdrawn, as artists mostly need quiet to create?
The place itself becomes the main theme of the project ‘Topoi Withdrawn’, which tries to find a new way, or its own way of portraying a place.
Each place has its own stories, its own feeling, its own sounds and colors.
