´We wished for fresh air, lakes, light and peace in the countryside.´

The privatistic – and yet common – desire for a weekend refuge was the starting point of the ”Rahmen”-project. But with the radical idea of the Anthropocene in mind everything about this becomes illusory and problematic: “out there” doesn’t make sense anymore; a bungalow in Brandenburg confronts us with the “land issue”; the work/life and the week/weekend dichotomies seem increasingly outdated; and “just the two of us” is not realistic when we think of ourselves as “pond among ponds”. So we ended up building a raft named Rahmen, an explorer that works as framework, developed over a pandemic summer, for an adaptive form of life and as an instrument for creating continuous reframings of the fundamental challenges of our time.” Isabell Schrickel, media theorist & PhD candidate/Leuphana University
