Get a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Is it something so good
Just can’t function no more
(Ian Curtis)

Like hardly any other concept, love generates images and spaces of emotions. Love is a symbol of power and emptiness, craving and refusal, lust and destruction. Love knows no outside, is a regime of inwardness, whose desire can be released by effacing the object of love. Love is a subjectivisation machine, everyone drafts an image of himself and the other person, and as such the enigmatic potential of love can only be developed in everyday life. On the basis of exemplary artistic positions, “(LOVE) WILL TEAR US” sets out to explore real and phantasmagorical reflections of the concept of love.
