The same goes for media and technical systems as we entrust them with our wishes and longings.

Arctic Perspective

The Arctic Perspective Initiative (API) is a non-profit, international group of individuals and organizations whose goal is to direct attention to the global cultural and ecological significance of the polar regions. These are zones of contemporary geopolitical conflict and at the same time potential spaces for transnational and intercultural cooperation and collaboration. The exhibition Arctic Perspective documents the development of a mobile work and habitation system which can be used for nomadic dwelling, environmental monitoring and media based work “on the land”, away from the established Arctic settlements as well as its connection to traditional knowledge and culture. The exhibition focuses on the notions of architecture, geopolitics, autonomy, technology, and landscape, while featuring other positive, northern initiatives and projects that reflect these notions and values of API.

Agents & Provocateurs

The research-based art project Agents & Provocateurs surveys certain forms of confrontation: agency and provocation, both understood as dissenting artistic attitudes. Starting out from the counter-cultural scenes of state-socialist East Central Europe, the project asks what sort of critical potential the oppositional artistic positions of the time really had.

"Awake are only the spirits" - On ghosts and their media

At first glance, the subject of the exhibition ‘Awake Are Only the Spirits’ – On Ghosts and Their Media seems somewhat outmoded: the presence of the supernatural, the manifestations of spirits, and (trans)communication with the beyond facilitated by technical media.
