Checkpoint: “Down to Earth” is free time. Time in which to come to rest, to listen, watch, talk and move on: analogue time, time to waste, time to turn difficulties into valuable experiences. Turn off the air conditioning and the lights – open the windows! On 17th January 2020, we spotted a spider/web in Gropius Bau. It had been living there for many months, unnoticed. This artwork is a call to recognise those spider/webs which did not arrive by invitation, an invitation to notice our spider/web neighbours differently; to move past cultural and personal arachnophobia. We want to acknowledge that living spider/webs face extinction — themselves becoming curious museological relics — if we do not recognize the violence of historical and ongoing extractive gestures, and shift our thinking about the ‘natural’ world.
