Katharina Wunderlich (Berlin)

Insomnia

Triple Feature II

Your head is heavy but thoughts keep revolving, ticking like a clockwork, rattling on and on, overstraining even the body’s possibilities. Like a sleepwalking side cast, the body follows the overexcited brain. Insomnia deals with the longing for stops and pauses, the yearning for sleep that is being felt more and more intensively under the increasing pressure of our meritocracy.
