The Transit Lounge is a German-Australian multi-disciplinary, collaborative project in an artistic-academic work environment with a focus on remote, networked exchange.

In response to the theme “Conspire” 2008 a new experimental framework has been developed. Extending the simultaneously real world and online collaborative structures Transit Lounge 2008 involves a team of artists working individually and together over 3 weeks in Berlin on elements and objects to be combined in a single event. This process is augmented by one-on-one online interactions with selected artists located in various cities around Australia. These interactions would take the form of instructions and obstructions, which at different times have the potential to disrupt or push along the work taking place in Berlin.

The interdisciplinarity of the artists will emphasize the working process and allow participants to step outside their medium to use a new language to collaborate and conspire. The participants based overseas are “brought” into the Berlin reality by their actions. Apart from the spacial connection, the different speeds of transmission of media and the difference in global time zones introduce time as a factor. The Transit Lounge 2008 will again focus on collaborative exchange, communication and works evolving over time.
