CONSPIRE… the transmediale exhibition, guest- curated by Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez, focuses on the strategic notion of the conspiratorial act. In poetic reference to the term's Latin roots, conspirare, the exhibition deconstructs the nature of conspiracy into a silent and cosmic act of 'collective breathing' suggesting a sharply targeted, yet anonymous and intimate form of creative collaboration.
The works and projects chosen approach the perceptive borders of our daily lives with coded instructions, exploratory maps and speculative allusions which provoke alternative views about the way in which we understand information and what we believe to be universal truths.
As such, thematic constructs around the notions of conspiratorial truths, bio-organic systems and twisted realities emerge from the contextualising clusters explored within the exhibition.
The exhibition, featuring many new works specially conceived for transmediale, will be shown at the exhibition hall and the studio gallery, and will be open through February 24, 2008.
