The exhibition Sleepers shows scenes from different places in the world, where mostly young people suffer consequences of global market. Sleep is a form of non violent resistance; or in other case just a response of the body to the unbearable working pressure. Sleep is also associated with sleeping mind – the blindness of populations – sometimes unconscious and sometimes desired blindness / sleep, because the reality is too hard to accept. Sleeping Chinese worker – after 16 hours shift asked to work overnight, sleeping African clandestine on the beach of Tangier – after nights of trying to cross the border between the camions, sleeping occupy protester in the tents somewhere in America… These are some of the scenes portrayed on the show.
Through classical media – paintings, objects and text-this darker side of our universe is explored and presented to visitors of Nastupiste 1-12 in Topolcany, Slovakia – unconventional cultural unit in the corridor under bus station.
