Exhausting the Body


12th-13th. July. 2019. Berlin
︎    ︎




Exhausting the Body is a collaborative project exploring the boundaries of a unified theme. We invite you to witness, and be part of, an alternative to a passive experience of art over 48 hours. By pushing our bodies to our edges, we reach new states of awareness. Here we find freedom.
