23/12/2020 Take Me to the River
—— All over the world, cultural professionals, artists, architects and designers are grappling with the effects of climate change whilst actively involving their communities. Their work opens up creative spaces that raise awareness of changes in our environment and develop possible solutions to counter the climate crisis. The website we have worked with, Take Me to the River, presents the diverse perspectives as a chorus of voices against resource depletion, environmental abuse and the violation of the rights of indigenous communities. The exhibition pursues five narratives – Subject of Rights, Object of Abuse, Nature Prosecutes, Humanity Sentenced and Motion to Recover – to weave the individual projects into a story that both illustrates the effects of the climate crisis on people and the environment and shows alternative answers.

17/09/2020 CC: World
—— The pandemic forces us to pause in opposition to the economization of all spheres of life. How are artists and people who think about alternative forms of thought and action experiencing this existential situation? What do they see in this state of standstill, of limbo? Videos, texts, audio clips and other formats open a window of reflection, clearing our view of the cracks in this planetary present and the misguided logics of the past, but also of possible futures. A website with contributions by Teju Cole, Tom McCarthy, Rabih Mroué, The Otolith Group, Hito Steyerl, Meg Stuart, Jenna Sutela, and many others.
