Von nun an unbequem/From now on uneasy
Curated by Nicole Rebmann
It’s time to take on a jack-knife position. To want it all but just not the easy way. Nothing is foreseeable or perfect. The desire for intoxication, touching and feeling secure. Discomfort is not an imposition. Seduction, challenge and rejection are the poles between which these films move along.
