Das halbe Leid (2017)

Share ...

The society ”Das halbe Leid” (”Half the Suffering”) has set itself the task of developing the faculty of empathy.
For that purpose 12hour courses are offered where the newly devised method of identity sharing will be applied. ”Das halbe Leid” invites up to 50 persons per course to spend a night among ”sufferers” and ”compassionates”.
Up until now the courses have been a well kept secret in fashionable circles. Now, however, they will be made accessible to the general public.

Booking arrangements:

Each participant will be assigned a bed at Wiesendamm 30 for 12 hours. On site he will be given clothes to wear and his personal belongings will be stored in a locker. Access to the locker is possible at all times. Simple substantial meals are provided. Additional food and drink can be purchased during the course. It is not allowed to bring alcohol. Participation from age 18.
