NEW IN RESIDENCY: JETTE BÜCHSENSCHÜTZ
Meet Berlin-based dramaturg, writer and cultural worker Jette Büchsenschütz.
During her week-long residency at wpZimmer, Jette works on her research titled “Radical Depression or how to depathologize disruption” which intends to look deeper into the intertwinement of neoliberal economy, its labour conditions and the increasing struggle with mental health and depression.
Illness is a force that disrupts a person’s life story. Once the mechanisms of illness take over, it is hard to make sense of what is happening to you. And what you do, specially it if comes to mental illness: you take it personal, you blame yourself and your inability to cope and to carry on.
