In the Listening series Other Planes of There, the three artists Caroline Ann Baur, Vanessà Heer and Tina Reden invite us to speculate on future forms of coexistence through sonic fabulation. In September, artists Tracy September, Elsa M'bala aka AMET, Franziska Koch, Vivian Wang, Brandy Butler, Beat Keller, Vanessa Lorenzo, Oliver Keller, Ahmet Köken and Mina Squalli opened the series in a large improvisation round. The duos that had come together for the opening were supposed to be invited back for a second time to create an evening for one session per cycle. Instead, Corona moved us to reunite the cancelled sessions in a small festival as a finale from the spring season at Gessnerallee. We try to stick to the original theme, according to the poet Fred Moten: "How we can figure it out, work it out, to see how we can get out of this. We are interested in the moment at which this transformation might begin to occur [...] when we get together [...] and imagine what exists in a way that is more intense then the need to imagine what does not exist. [...] When we get together to figure it out, we are doing something".
