What remains of an encounter, of a conversation? Which material elements do justice to a social interaction?
Sascia Bailer's curatorial programme at M.1 Hohenlockstedt on the theme "Who cares about those who care?" consisted of formats that focused on people's encounters: The Social Muscle Club as a training of social muscles, storytelling cafés and workshops on topics such as trust, motherhood, isolation and time. For over a year, we accompanied the events of Sascia Bailer's programme and developed eight interpretations in the form of suitcases.
For it is only logical in a feminist series of events to ask how the experience can remain accessible and experienceable afterwards - for people who have taken care of others during the appointment, or also for those for whom a visit to M.1 is associated with many hurdles. The archive of encounters is accordingly mobile and participatory: in 8 suitcases, 8 different events were interpreted and preserved.
The archive invites visitors to search for traces and to engage with the topics, impressions and experiences at their leisure, and in turn to allow their own encounters with the archived contents.
