2022 Exceptional_ States

What hap¬≠pens today will chan¬≠ge our tomor¬≠row. Fragility deter¬≠mi¬≠nes our ever¬≠y¬≠day life, resi¬≠li¬≠en¬≠ce is in high demand, lon¬≠gings build a uto¬≠pia of future co-exis¬≠tence. What is nor¬≠mal for some, is an excep¬≠ti¬≠on for others. And whe¬≠re the¬≠re is a sta¬≠te of excep¬≠ti¬≠on, the¬≠re is also a cri¬≠sis. Who bene¬≠fits from unsafe con¬≠di¬≠ti¬≠ons, who pro¬≠vi¬≠des care work, what oppor¬≠tu¬≠nities for par¬≠ti¬≠ci¬≠pa¬≠ti¬≠on exist? What chan¬≠ces pre¬≠sent them¬≠sel¬≠ves in sta¬≠tes of excep¬≠ti¬≠on, and how can we make use of them?

Our topic of the year 2022 loo­ks into cur­rent cri­ses and chan­ces. After two years of pan­de­mic and in the light of nume­rous glo­bal poli­ti­cal con­flicts and an ongo­ing cli­ma­te cri­sis, we want to open a space whe­re pre­sent-day dis­so­nan­ces can reso­na­te. We belie­ve that exchan­ge, abo­ve all, can help to over­co­me cri­ses. Therefore com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on, par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on, and media­ti­on are at the cen­ter of our 2022 pro­jects. You are warm­ly invi­ted to visit and par­ti­ci­pa­te in dif­fe­rent for­mats like exhi­bi­ti­ons, scree­nings, talks, dis­cus­sions, and workshops.
