The Cake & Cash Curatorial Collective is a feminist exchange and exhibition project that has occupied the HFBK gallery since winter semester 2020/21 and uses it as a research laboratory. In the summer of 2021 the collective will move for one year in the bar of the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof and transforms it into a discourse and recreation space, which questions the conditions and illusions of today's world of work.
