Leaves for Burning takes its title from Peter Weiss’s 1964 play Marat/Sade, a thought experiment about the reciprocity of the Terror and the French Revolution. In 2022, democracies grapple with this legacy. Accordingly, Leaves for Burning features three solo projects by Cog∙nate Collective, Bassem Saad, and Artur Żmijewski that perform a collaborative inquiry into biopolitics, inspiring a blazing life drive to counteract the beat of a global death drive.
