As curators we see our roles as mediators between artistic expression and public perception. By creating contexts within themed international group exhibitions, we create visibility for artistic works and their relationship to one another. We focus on art that deals with how the digital and the Internet shapes and changes our societal and personal conditions.
Our group exhibitions bring artists from different cultural backgrounds together to reveal their diverse perspectives on current themes. Artists address the state of the digital and the Internet in various media or handle the interaction between real and virtual spaces using digital technologies like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. Artists critically reflect and use global networks as well as new technologies to question and reposition today’s social, political, cultural or personal conditions or the perception of global history through digital media. These topics are particularly relevant today: Post-colonialism, feminism, global activism, the Anthropocene, gender roles, post-capitalist thinking, speculative realism or new materialism.
Permanently absorbing and reflecting, we present artistic approaches to a broad audience to create a better understanding of the world we live in—and therefore to contribute to a more tolerant, open-minded and empathic global society. We bring artistic works together in an intelligible and comprehensible way to create access to art for everyone. We do not believe in art for art’s sake. We believe that communicating art is not about simplicity or complexity, it is about finding the right words to convey it.
