Civil disobedience: repair is a performance series, which focuses on an almost obsolete action in the western world: the repair of everyday goods. Remote controls, blenders, telephones – once they are broken their repair seems to be economically senseless. Things with a predetermined lifetime and their disposal became crucial to our economical system based on continuous growth and hence demanding permanent consumerism. This performance series invites everybody to bring their broken things and devices so we can try to dare a repair. No matter what, together we give it a try. For free.

In any case, it will be start for conversation, learning and reflection, and hopefully the device will be fine at the end. Like this we train ourselves in this special form of civil disobedience in order to get back some autonomy in the usage of the constructed world. It starts with the turn of a screwdriver. Each examined object is being documented with a photography and an entry in the order book. The Sessions are free of charge.
