EDEN – Poisoned Temptations

Date:28. Mar – 1. Sep 2021
WhiteSpaceBlackBox, Neuchâtel, Switzerland

Shaping horizons on fear, exploitation and oppression

The whispers of the snake
Eden is a promise.
For glory and sin.
For love and lies.
For heaven and hell. And greed.
For power and oppression.
For hope and escape.
For privileges and defense.
For above and below.
For master and slave.
For wickedness and mischief.
For beauty and death.
Then as now.
