“None for all, nobody for everyone, many and others, each for themselves” That is the conclusion of the shaking/shocking choir of the contemporary Singspiel by Beate Engl, Leonie Felle und Franka Kaßner. The neologism PREKÄROTOPIA stems from the German words “prekär” (precarious),“Rotation” (rotation) and “Utopie” (utopia) and questions the fundamental definition of solidarity of a community and of an individual. In the system of Prekärotopia, the three protagonists Speaker, Poupée and Trickster are fluctuating between fragmentation/brokenness and drive, triumph and failure, euphoria and dispair. They are longing for solidary emancipation and participation; however, they are failing.
Prekärotopia was premiered in 2019 at the Kunstbau der Städtischen Galerie im Lenbachhaus München and was awarded with the Kunstpreis der Bayerischen Akademie der Schönen Künste.
