This probably will not work

“This probably will not work” is a quote by American artist Jimmie Durham, which perfectly describes the concept of a utopia — an ideal state to strive for, while any realisation of it cannot be possible. Although the statement might sound pessimistic at first glance, the subtle word “probably” makes sure we stay active. With this title, Lothringer13 Halle invited three artists to produce new work on site. Stefan Burger, Federico Delfrati and Kostis Velonis concentrate on problems which require a certain bravery to fail.

A walk through the hall confronts the visitor with a redistribution between failure and success. We break through physical laws, remember old ideals and question the local condition.
