This exhibition is concerned with escape and the desperate urge to “be away” as a phenomenon of our contemporary everyday life. When people in the German-speaking world talk about Last minute they usually do so in connection with a form of travelling in which the destination is less important than the longing to be somewhere, above all somewhere else, as quickly as possible. The last-minute perspective leaves the destination open. How the future will look “where the journey will end” remains unclear. The only thing that is clear is the notion of a present that demands to be left. In this sense Last minute stands for an economy of escaping of fleeing escape.
