Kasia Fudakowski - Stoikerinnen LP 26498
The 12“ vinyl „Stoikerinnen“ (dt. for Female Stoics) by artist Kasia Fudakowski – born 1985 in London, lives in Berlin – is an integral part of an installation exhibited at Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof from June 14 to September 19, 2014, the third exhibition in a series by Fudakowski which began with „Enthusiastinnen“ in 2012 and was followed by „Pessimistinnen“ in 2013.

"While Enthusiasts are able to get excited over almost anything which often leads to good-willed misunderstandings, and Pessimists utilise a kind of defensive pessimism in order to be, at best, pleasantly surprised by a non-apocalyptic outcome, the Stoics exercise denial and indifference in order to endure what life throws at them." Kasia Fudakowski

Fudakowskis LP „Stoikerinnen“ contains audio created, manipulated and mixed by the artist. The record enjoys a collaborative feel of many voices since it contains a train of commissioned performances by Fudakowski’s friends including: Alexander Brenchley, Dorothy Feaver, Sam de Groot, Paul Haworth, William Kherbek, Helen Marten and Ayumi Rahn. Many of the texts and improvised dialogues on „Stoikerinnen“ employ a comic darkness to focus on clichéd extremes of Stoic reasoning.
