Know Your Enemy

Walk-in audio and radio play installations

Know your enemy – do we know our enemies? And what is that actual­ly, an enemy, an enemy ste­reo­ty­pe? What if we expe­ri­ence our­sel­ves as the enemy? Some­ti­mes ant­ago­nists are obvious­ly reco­gniz­ab­le, some­ti­mes they are hid­den and can­not be unmas­ked as such. What do we actual­ly attri­bu­te to whom? And what do my enemies say about me?

We move in the field of ten­si­on bet­ween man and natu­re, man and tech­no­lo­gy, and man vs. man. Nar­ra­ti­ves are scru­ti­ni­zed and radi­cal­ly retold. What does it sound like when ani­mal and human meet? What do sexu­al encoun­ters bet­ween bodies sound like? How long is the list of ani­mals that beca­me extinct in the Anthropo­ce­ne, any­way? And what hap­pens when one’s own fan­ta­sies or sexua­li­ty beco­mes the enemy?

ZHdK stu­dents from dif­fe­rent majors dis­sect the­se ques­ti­ons and trans­form them into audi­to­ry for­mats that can be expe­ri­en­ced spa­ti­al­ly in Chorgasse.
