About 50 activists, initiatives, artists, theorists and opinion leaders from throughout the world have been invited to redefine the concepts of work and of being active under the motto “practice, method, scope.” The project began in January 2008 with a series of lectures and workshops. Since August, a number of interventions have taken place in Berlin public space. From 13 December, the participants will be showing what they understand by a collaborative and mutually supportive space to think, explore the scope of possibilities, and act, in the exhibition space at NGBK.
The exhibition presents both the processes involved—workshops, campaigns, radio and film productions, artists’ actions and political interventions in urban space, as well as the results—films, posters, songs and other acoustic works, sculptures and documentary material.
/unvermittelt will be accompanied by a publication in German. ISBN: 978-3-938515-21-1.
At the evening opening at NGBK the Chor der Tätigen will be singing pop-songs on the topic of work together with Judiths Krise.
