“Schuld” is a German term that implements two different yet related meanings: “guilt” as a moral duty and “debt” as an economical obligation. Schuldfabrik explores the conflict between these notions and their potential valorisation. Schuldfabrik proposes contemporary forms of indulgence trade. In collaboration with plastic surgeons and their clients, Julian Hetzel created a soap from human fat that is sourced from liposuctions. “Self – Human Soap” is made from people for people.
Schuldfabrik is a multi-room parkour; a soap shop, a beauty clinic, a confessionary and a sustainable system of up-cycling guilt. The installation has several entrances yet no way out. In Schuldfabrik the collective obligation to remember is put into dialogue with the individual right to forget.
“Although you wash yourself with soap and use an abundance of cleansing powder, the stain of your guilt is still before me”.
