The title of the exhibition Tankstelle, which presents works of Barbora Kleinhamplová and Tereza Stejskalová, alludes to a contemporary condition where consumption and work is prioritized to the detriment of sleep. Tankstelle means in the German language a gas station. A place that is always open, where one can fill up on energy around the clock, where one can supply a car or a truck with fuel so that it can continue on a road, often to deliver goods. Integral when one envisions a gas station is the image of anonymous tired cashiers working around the clock. Even in Austria, where store hours are strictly regulated, gas stations have an exception, as they are one of the few places where you can shop on Sunday and after eight o’clock. The exhibition Tankstelle is an appeal to prioritize sleep and rest without the attendance of an unnamed service worker.
