The American philosopher and civil rights activist W.E.B. Dubois wrote in 1903 in “The Souls of Black Folk,” a collection of essays about communities and identities: “It is, in fine, the atmosphere of the land, the thought and feeling, the thousand and one little actions which go to make up life. In any community or nation it is these little things which are most elusive to the grasp and yet most essential to any clear conception of the group life taken as a whole.” In October and November, Lothringer13 Halle pulls out the magnifying glass and observes some of these supposed “little” things and countless normalities. The focus is less on the beautiful surface of skin color and more on the complex connections that arise in categorizing and differentiating.

For “A Thousand and X Little Actions,” Jörg Koopmann has invited artists, whose work is shaped by a critical, sensitive confrontation with existing relationships and whose attitude reflects a curiosity towards humankind and an openness toward their subjects: Five artists, working across borders, who closely examine diverse identities and their stereotypes and expand upon them, without romanticizing anything in the process.
