The year 2020 has brought with it unexpected events. Our lives in the world as we knew it before have changed abruptly. Yet we all have to and want to carry on. But is that just how it works – carry on as before? Or has the crisis been a time to widen our view? In addition to the play on words, the title also contains a semantic play. Omissions and insertions in quotations are marked with square brackets. Linguistics uses them to describe a phonetic transcription. In chemistry, elements of a complex are grouped together. Mathematics bundles larger therms in square brackets. In 2020, we all reached the moment of being put in square brackets where there was a sudden omission, something was rewritten, bundled, or inserted. Everybody is experiencing structural and atmospheric changes in various forms and degrees. Many artists continued to work consistently on their previous themes. Others responded in content to questions raised by the crisis and its aftermath. New strategies were tested.

In the exhibition [.] weiter machen (to broaden/continue) 20 Hamburg artists connected different ways and possibilities of how to continue.  All works were created during the pandemic. The theme of time plays a major role, and so does the uncovering of contradictions. Fragility and insecurity resonate. There is a sense of bewilderment and perplexity, but also the will to continue and the opportunities to continue one’s own work.
