We live from the first inhale to the last exhale. We breathe to live, we live as we breathe. By breathing, we supply oxygen to the brain. Breathing produces thoughts. Breathing is a struggle for life. We fight for our existence, for our meaning, for our thought. With a minimalist act of the installation, we observe the basic human right to exist, through visual poetics we show the struggle for this basic right. Let us breathe. Let them breathe.

In 2021 the Shift will focus on systemic gaps in the field of human rights and freedoms written in the Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia: “In Slovenia everyone shall be guaranteed equal human rights and fundamental freedoms irrespective of national origin, race, sex, language, religion, political, or other conviction, material standing, birth, education, social status, disability, or any other personal circumstance. All are equal before the law.” (Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia, Article 14).

Shift is a performative format that detects systemic gaps in the field of health, knowledge, work and law in the period 2018-2021. Shift does not invent. Shift is evidence of evident. Shift performs with those for whom it performs. Shift is interested in the potential of everyday life.
