„Nur wer sich und seine Person mitnimmt in das Wagnis der Öffentlichkeit, kann sie erreichen.“ Hannah Arendt


The basis for this exhibition are performances and interventions in public space and its documentary. NAF engage in topics of constructed gender roles, trans*gender, body and  city. They are on a artistic quest for standardization which define and organize daily actions in public space – how do we cross streets? How do we behave at a public square, how do we behave in shopping malls? Where is what kind of clothing and behaviour adequate? NAF were unannounced active in places such as financial district, shopping malls and showrooms. They change the format in their work – installations and videos have emerged from their performances and interventions, standing alone as independent works and now being returned to public space.  Everything together feeds on their personal life experiences and life plans.waren unangemeldet aktiv an Orten wie Bankenviertel, Shopping Malls und Ausstellungsräumen. NAF wants the public space as a space in which citizens can meet in freedom. Meeting is different than doing business. It is different from feeling permanently challenged to consume something. We are surrounded by objects that we desire, we make ourselves  an object – handsome, attractive, profitable. The public space should be a place to reinvent yourself again and again, to meet and regenerate!

Theater Rampe is one such place. It is like the root of the exhibition, from where the interventions of NAF move like the shoots of a plant into the public space.

NORM IS F! KTION is criticism of utilization, economy and privatization of public spaces. It is an invitation to develop utopias that deal with empathy, emancipation, multiplicity of lives and self-empowerment.
