We are very happy to announce UFFICIO DELLA NOTTE, a meeting point for the figures of the night.
Pleasure – the sharing of joy – affects and connects people. Although certain practices, especially those that conform to non-normative, queer, non-monogamous and non-binary lives, have always been marginalised, criminalised or at least ignored by the institutions of power. Nevertheless the figures of the night have broken the limits of society’s decency. What still remains are questions: Where and how do we talk about pleasure? Which spaces are claimed and by whom? Are safe(r) spaces only dreams of a hidden utopia? To which extent do institutions determine what is sexually allowed/not allowed? And what does all this have to do with care work? In search of answers, UFFICIO DELLA NOTTE presents thirteen artistic positions that are shown in six different art spaces and clubs as well as in public spaces. The exhibition takes place from 23rd September to 15th of October 2022 in Zurich and is combined with walks, a pleasure positive party and a panel on the topic of Sexwork.
With works by Göksu Kunak, Florian Hetz, Benjamin Egger, Dario Callerame, Oz Oderbolz, DIVAS, Gilles Smrkovsky, Alina Kopytsa, Philipp Gufler, Berlin Strippers Collective, Jeanne Jacob, Latefa Wiersch and SLOCH.
The exhibition takes place at Rote Fabrik, Die Diele, Parat, Last Tango, BosqueRreal, Baby Angel and in public space.

Borderline Case 2.0 addresses the issue of East-Central European identity through the works of young artists who do not necessarily see the fall of communism in the region as a point of reference, and who no longer view the East/West dichotomy as the cornerstone of their stories. In their work, regional geopolitics are accompanied by other elements of identity construction; together they create a fabric which reveals the changing face of East-Central Europe.
The exhibition’s title was inspired by a 2009 novel by Péter Hunčík, a Slovakia-based Hungarian psychiatrist, which tells the 20th-century history of the region through the mixed population of a small Slovakian border town. It is a reference, on the one hand, to the special significance of borders in the region and, on the other hand, to the liminal state between West and East, to the ever-changing perspectives of “more here than there,” and to permanent relativity.
Borderline Case 2.0 is a new instalment of the exhibition that opened in January 2022 at Debrecen’s MODEM. The first Borderline Case featured the works of 14 young artists from 5 countries (Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Romania), most of which was specially created for the exhibition. While the Debrecen show laid emphasis on the historical contexts of the period between 1848 and 2021 (through the concepts of language, borders, and regional identity), the exhibition at Budapest Gallery widens its scope to include the situation of marginalised groups in the region. The war in Ukraine shows once again how crucial the questions of borders and regional solidarity are, and has, in many respects, redrawn the mental map of East-Central Europe. As a result, it was important that, in addition to existing works, the exhibition feature pieces from East-Central Europe in the broad sense, which, avoiding the pitfalls of the West/East dichotomy, reflect on social issues within the region – on an inward, and not an outward, gaze.
