The ABYSSAL is the physical headquarters of the BAD BOY JESUS CITY SWIMMERS CLUB and resides within the Kunstverein bar. The BAD BOY JESUS ​​CITY SWIMMERS CLUB is an association that anyone—swimmers and non-swimmers alike—can join free of charge. It consists of a mailing list that sends out invitations to swim together as well as readers and playlists. The club broadly functions as a metaphor for both individual and social life in the city: staying afloat or floundering, swimming with or against the stream.
