The "sadly safe" exhibition deals with the losses and side-effects that go hand in hand with the social production of safety: what are the functions of public and private discourses on safety and potential threats in the everyday production of reality? What is their role in implementing political and economic objectives? What are we training for?

The exhibition was curated by Sören Grammel.
