Chapter 1: Out of Your Head and Into my Body
by otc – Observant Thick Conversation (Rahel grote Lambers, Alexander Klaubert, Francis Kussatz, Julia Lübbecke)

In a long-term research and exchange process, the artists' collective otc - Observant Thick Conversation, explores solidarity-based forms of sustainable collaboration. In the Lothringer 13 Halle, otc takes up various aspects of collective labour and translates them into a site-specific installation made from found materials and elements from the art space's storrage. Through various components in the space, which are connected to each other, face each other, hold each other, come uncomfortably close to each other, stretch apart, lean against each other or support each other, recurring physical and emotional situations from the collective labour are suggested and made tangible for visitors.

otc – Observant Thick Conversation, formerly ‘Yours truly, LoL’, formerly ‘Law of Life (LoL)’ is an artists' collective that has set itself the goal of creating collective structures for young artists to support each other. Networking and building sustainable networks in exchange with artists, curators and institutions is an essential part of their joint artistic and political practice.

The collective has realised various projects and exhibitions in Košice (SK), Hamburg, Berlin and Göttingen. Currently otc consists of Rahel grote Lambers, Alexander Klaubert, Francis Kussatz and Julia Lübbecke.

The installation Out of Your Head and Into my Body is being created in cooperation with Künstlerhaus Lauenburg as part of the series Have we passed peak collective?, which will be realised by otc in Lauenburg, Munich, Bremen and Berlin from 2024 - 2025.
