“Neither tales of progess nor of ruin tell us how tot hink about collaborative survival.”

– Anna Tsing: The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruins (2015)

The group exhibition scenes never rest situates the works of over 30 PLATFORM studio artists in the context of the development and perspective of location and environment in order to visualise urban architectural history as a collective projection: How do the “spaces from back then” meet the “ideals of today”? Behind contrasting façades, works of all kinds condense into an archaeology of the future dealing with the different ideas and relationships that determine institution and positions and makes common horizons visible. Broken world thinking? Between industrial ruin and cultural area, microcosm and macrocosm, individual patterns and collaborative potential become visible – artificial worlds turn into speculative scenarios that cast silent shadows and harbour future memories…
