Sebastian Lütgert (Pirate Cinema Berlin)                                        
                                                                                
What happened to sharing, what happened to caring?                              
                                                                                
In a u-turn of events that may come as a surprise to some, and less so to       
others, Sebastian Lütgert of Pirate Cinema Berlin, an institution known for its 
fierce pro-copyright-infringement stance and strict anti-carelessness policy in 
recent months, will announce the discovery of several serious flaws in two      
widely shared practices and deeply cared-about concepts, namely: "sharing" and  
"caring".                                                                       
                                                                                
Initially conceived as "What happened to 'Sharing Is Caring'?" (a popular       
pirate slogan from the pre-Facebook-era), this first-of-its-kind analog         
slideshow-cum-commentary is supposed to articulate a growing discomfort with    
commodified human interactions on "social media", to lament rather poignantly   
certain fashion phenomenona in the art world anno 2020ff, and to radically      
question the role of both "sharing" and "caring" as coping mechanisms           
during "the current situation", which, in the eyes of Pirate Cinema, is not     
primarily a global pandemic or psychosis, but a wide-open invitation to         
flatten, once and for good, the many exponentials of everyday life, artistic    
production and extractive social relations - an accelerating pile-up of         
individual ecological mini-crises and nervous breakdowns that form the global   
ecolocigal disaster most commonly known as "capitalism".                        
                                                                                
TL;DR: Oversharing and overcaring are two of the four horsemen of our 2020      
calamities. (Horsemen three and four will be announced later this year.)
