Thinking together (the disregard) of both, the specific architectural conditions and the role of care work in the tale of the birth of panic disorder, "A stain inside a paper, a whisper" explores processes of (dis)appearance, withdrawal and traces of (in)visibilities Stephan Blumenschein (DAI, 2018) encountered in the archives and during his research period in New York, Spring 2022. From 13 November till 18 December at P/////AKT.
Inspired by Felicity Callard’s “The Intimate Geographies of Panic Disorder”, which analyzes events that took place at Hillside Hospital/New York during 1959-62 and would become the origin story of panic disorder as a new medical category.
The research was made possible with the financial support of Amsterdam Fund for the Arts, Stichting Gerbrandy and BMKOES Austria.
A stain inside a paper, a whisper is the latest addition to the P/////AKT-collection of limited edition works by alumni artists.
