The Künstlerhaus Dortmund shows an exhibition titled "Everyday Is Like Sunday" with works of seven photographers. The lyrics of Morissey show that it is not
about enjoyable weekdays, but rather about holiday's threat, since Sunday is described quiet and grey. This ambivalence, hidden in the title of the exhibition, was chosen as a main concern for the exhibition. Between everyday life and holiday, between normality and experiment, between work and leisure time, between party-time and boredom, the works of the invited artists span a panorama of the everyday world, into which disturbing moments break in. At the same time, consumption and its leisure-oriented aspects play a role when hard work is taken to create customers' dream worlds. Other works of the exhibition deal with the experience of sexuality between prostitution and partnership. Holidays intending a flight from daily routine, weekdays intending freedom of grey despair: The Exhibition will show the living worlds of the Ruhr region, which can be read either as a leisure park or a sad setting of paid work.
