Take care! Prends soin de toi. Kendine Iyi bak, اعتني بنفسك (āʿatinī binafsika) – all over the world, one's parting wish is to take care of oneself, to look after oneself. In her novel Radikale Zärtlichkeit (Radical Tenderness), Seyda Kurt mentions the song Arkadas, which is about "the unbending, tireless and yet malleable connectedness on the way to a different, revolutionary future". This connectedness requires individuals to collectively engage with each other, care about each other and leave the terrain they know to work for change regardless of their own comfort zone. CABRIO 2022 wants to approach the multifaceted notion of care and invites one to perceive the possibility of aesthetic experiences away from commercial, neoliberal self-care mandates.
This opens up a field of tension between art institutions, audience and community that gives people living in Bielefeld and the surrounding area and local cultural communities the opportunity to appear and be seen as part of a caring, mindful, thinking community that is characterised by its shared intercultural, anti-racist practice.

Admission is free.
