The Palliative Turn
Curated by Nadja Quante with Kasia Fudakowski and Olav Westphalen
Künstlerhaus Bremen, Bremen
9 July – 3 October 2022

The exhibition The Palliative Turn presents a collaborative and interdisciplinary project of over 30 artists, designers, a kinesiologist, a philosopher, a comedian, a grief and end-of-life counselor, and a climatologist who all have entered into an exchange within the framework of the Association for the Palliative Turn (APT). With an experimental, speculative, and humorous approach, APT applies the concepts and methods of palliative care to the current crises of civilization, viewing the period before systemic collapse as a time of insight, growth, and deep joy in all that is left. The group exhibition and the accompanying program were curated in close collaboration with Kasia Fudakowski and Olav Westphalen.
