Dutch Courage

48 Stunden Neukölln

Curated by
Janine Eggert, Philipp Ricklefs and Cristopher Sage

„Dutch“ or „liquid courage“ describes the procedure usually executed at pubs and sometimes art show openings as well, to lower one's inhibition to come into contact with others and gain bravado from drinking. The project's concept is not so much about the intoxicating part, but the employment of the ritual of drinking together as a platform for communication. With the invitation to the project, the curators challenged the artists with a lump of clay as a traditional but sometimes forgotten artistic material and the request to model something that can hold liquids.
