Mugwumpin is pleased to announce a call for proposals from artists of any discipline for a year-long inquiry, via live art and discourse, into the human compulsion towards exhaustion and the tactics we use to endure.

Over the course of 2016, Mugwumpin will initiate a series of events that engage each other in a conversation that both interrogates and embodies the human tendency towards exhaustion. From the personal to the global, humanity displays an impulse to use up available resources: we demand that workers labor to fatigue, we spend more money than we actually have, we use natural resources as though they were limitless. For survival—both individually and as a species—we develop strategies to endure, but when exhaustion outstrips our perseverance: what then?
