Sickness Affinity Group (SAG) is a group of art workers and activists who work on the topic of sickness/disability and/or are affected by sickness/disability founded in 2017. In All my Messy Parts, SAG looks back on their six years of existence, trying to understand how collective bodies grow. Thus, the participants look back at their cohesion and conflicts, their failures, and breakups; their fears and hopes for the future; their exhaustion and the ways in which they have supported each other.
In an open and cozy installation with weighted blankets, places for rest, stimming, wiggling, and hanging out, they revisit their own archive. We invite you to tap into collective knowledges by visiting the Zine Library, participate in collective co-writing and co-reading sessions or in group meditations. “We want to invite you into crip time, sick time, sleepy time, and caring time.”
Individual access needs for attending the event can be communicated to us by June 1 at email@example.com or 030-27 89 00 35. We will get back to you after checking the possibilities.
The content of the installation is accessible in:
- German and English spoken language (on MP3 players)
- German and English written language
- German Sign Language (except for the Zine Library)
- German Braille (except for the Zine Library)
- Audio description in German of the space and for the meditations

Sickness Affinity Group (SAG) is a group of art workers and activists who work on the topic of sickness/disability and/or are affected by sickness/disability. Sickness Affinity Group functions as a support group that challenges the competitive and ableist mode of working in the arts by sharing experiences and information and by prioritizing the well-being and access needs of its group members. Sickness Affinity Group investigates accessibility as both a topic and curatorial method. They aim to celebrate and create room for non-normative bodies, politics and desires, as well as offering a supportive environment for fragility and wellbeing. Sickness Affinity Group holds regular meetings in Berlin and maintains an email list. Sickness Affinity Group members collaborate on projects in small working groups and report back from their process in the bi-monthly meetings. You can sign up to the Mailing List to share/receive information and to attend upcoming meetings.
