What is hap¬≠pe¬≠ning today, chan¬≠ges what is about to come tomor¬≠row. Fragilities deter¬≠mi¬≠ne ever¬≠y¬≠day life, resi¬≠li¬≠en¬≠ce is requi¬≠red, lon¬≠gings build a uto¬≠pia of future coexis¬≠tence. What is a norm to some, is an excep¬≠ti¬≠on to others. A sta¬≠te of emer¬≠gen¬≠cy implies that the¬≠re is a cri¬≠sis. Who bene¬≠fits from unsafe con¬≠di¬≠ti¬≠ons? Who does care work? Which pos¬≠si¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ties of par¬≠ti¬≠ci¬≠pa¬≠ti¬≠on are the¬≠re? Which oppor¬≠tu¬≠nities can be found in tho¬≠se excep¬≠tio¬≠nal sta¬≠tes and how can they be made use of?

The annu­al the­me 2022 takes a look at the cri­ses and oppor­tu­nities of our time. After two years of pan­de­mic, and in the face of nume­rous poli­ti­cal, glo­bal con­flicts as well as the ongo­ing cli­ma­te cri­sis we would like to grant visi­bi­li­ty to the dis­so­nan­ces of our time. We belie­ve that, abo­ve all, cri­ses can be over­co­me through mutu­al exchan­ge. For this rea­son, this year we are focu­sing on pro­jects with under­stan­ding, par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on and media­ti­on at their core. We cor­di­al­ly invi­te you to be visi­tors and par­ti­ci­pants of dif­fe­rent for­mats such as exhi­bi­ti­ons, scree­nings, lec­tures, dis­cus­sions and workshops
