about sweet dreams, food, time and beautiful nightmares

Sweet Crip is about identities, love, pleasure and care. Proposed by Lari Medawar, the exhibition is inspired by crip and queer culture and brings together artists that articulate their own contexts, objects and thoughts. They invite you to linger in a space full of pillows and beds, prostheses and blankets, books and chocolate, pills and marshmallows, wheelchairs and crutches, tea and nap times.

MOTIONS proposed by Lari Medawar

Invited by Camille Regli and Kristina Grigorjeva

With the help of Neige Sanchez et Fig Doche, l’espace Eeeeeeeh !, Crashroom and Noha Winter, Centre hospitalier de la Ville de Bienne

Supported by Fonds Respect, Oertli Stiftung
