The Lobby

a break in the quarantine blues
a study of aloneness
what can give the sensation of home and connection however fleeting...

In the spring of 2020, Meg Stuart was invited by Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin to participate in the CC: World project. She created four videos, The Lobby, Intermission, Overtime and The Clock, which can be seen on the website of Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

The CC: World project of Haus der Kulturen der Welt is a collection of contributions from artists and researchers from all corners of the world as reflections on the current health crisis.
COVID-19 is both a catalyst and a magnifying glass for inequality and social injustice. At the same time, the current context also creates new forms of kinship and solidarity. What balance can we draw from this? How do we proceed? What are our aims beyond survival?
Meg Stuart discusses these questions in dialogue with a diverse group of artists and with the architecture of the iconic HKW building in Berlin. The result is four videos, in search of the now in a future landscape.
