Freedom of Sleep is an interdisciplinary exhibition that explores the desynchronisation between our bodies and society, through a rich program including a listening and performance space, a conference and an editorial platform.

The project aims to explore the night time, and insomnia, as a form of dissent, slow transformation, awakening and action. In a society that blinds us by continuous 24 hours work, this exhibition reflects upon the desynchronisation of the body through our norms and ideas of productivity, efficiency, attention, distraction, vigilance and free time, as well as inertia, and movements of rising and collapsing.

This exhibition aims to flip insomnia around by reinvesting in the night and its activities, and reconsidering the porosity between our bodies, rhythms and societies through art practices that emphasises listening whether visual, sonic or performative.
