On the margins of the cities and societies, Institutet are searching for the marginal, its representation and its history. The relations between the One and the Other appear, a constantly changing relation between subjection, sympathy, objectification, fascination and alienation, leading Institutet further into the very core of these relations, taking into account personal stories, literary fragments, and forays on the social margins of the cities. In The One and the Many movement, language and music are interwoven into a crippled, beautiful gesture of longing. Encircling The One and The Many, The One and The Other, and the founding of neo-romantic eroticism, in which the longing for entireness is transforming into a discourse about a new relation between politics and poetics. A craving traveller’s song. A melancholic twilight zone. In the depth of our memory. Standstill impossible. We’ll remain foreign to each other – and if we are not yet strangers, we will be.
