The intervention “Life in Time of Corona” is an attempt to fight the feeling of isolation and loneliness. It was created the day before the first phase of lock-down happened in Hamburg and was pasted in front of one of the biggest supermarkets in town, today’s only location for social contact. For most of us the time of self-isolation, quarantine, and illness is ahead of us and we have no idea how long this might take. We can stay in contact with loved-ones, family, friends, and almost forgotten acquaintances on the other side of the planet via email, skype or video link. This might also be a great moment of solidarity and empathy, but the minimum safety distance of 6 feet also excludes affection, warmth and closeness.
First pasted on a poster stand and later painted onto a locked down restaurant in Hamburg’s Sankt Pauli district.
