EXHIBITION  21.02-14.03.2021 / NEW – WATCH PARTY 06.03.2021, 14:00 h / PRE-RECORDING CONFERENCE 20.02.2021

Projects from Aarhus meet projects from Hamburg in order to experience the similarity and relationship of each other’s aesthetic approaches in their particular differences. All projects have in common a transdisciplinary orientation and an impact in the various fields of the social. We would like to learn with and from each other how strategies in solidarity in the field of international art and cultural exchange can develop new forms that reflect appropriately the problems of our time. The question pursues a critical consideration of the supposedly generally accepted concept of “we”.

These chards inside your pocket

Chards of glass have no saviors

Who are you lingering on in hope for? ..."

In everyday understanding “culture” as a term is often equated with identity.One’s own familiar identity, that which is not foreign, is being understood as a fixed canon representing universal values. If other cultures are being viewed from this fixed perspective, as a consequence they are being isolated as something alien.
