There are many good reasons to be in a bad mood. But where to put the tears in a society where toxic positivity is so present? Although crying helps and is healthy, tears are often not welcome. In the Leisure Garden of Sophiensæle, a temporary island of the unblessed is being created. Nuray Demir invites to bar-chat conversations about loss, death, collective melancholy, and resistance. Nurays Tränenbar: Here not only may the alcohol flow abundantly, but also the tears. Come as you are and feel free to bring a bad mood!
