thinking public sessions: June 10+14+16+17 at 19:30h
“Said to contain” is the contract-term used by shipping companies to accept containers for transport without verifying their contents.
SAID TO CONTAIN: is also a performance project initiated by Laura Kalauz, Maja Leo and Bojan Djordjev. They shipped themselves from Hamburg to Buenos Aires on a cargo ship following the logistics supermachine for 23 days in March and April 2016.
Piercing the opaque shell of global capitalism SAID TO CONTAIN: looks at how the production, consumption and flow of goods shape our way of being, thinking and living.
During May and June 2016 SAID TO CONTAIN: sets up a container in Zurich as an anchor for dialogue and performative production of knowledge: Thinking Public Sessions.
After nomadic sessions with economy students, schoolchildren, bankers and logistics workers, we invite the general audience for our premiere sessions:
Friday 10.06, Tuesday 14.06, Thursday 16.06. and Friday 17.06.
