Tracing Mobility exhibition at Haus der Kulturen der Welt


Tracing Mobility sets out to examine how electronic networks and mobile media are transforming our conceptions of time, space and distance.

The exhibition presents the positions of 16 international artists who trace the shifting terrain of global and local mobility, virtual and material movement. They use varying approaches to pursue the numerous questions of our present’s mobility: Where can we escape to when online- and offline worlds converge? What does the movement of a body in a landscape indicate when every point of the earth is within reach through the aid of digital technology? How do mobile devices and media alter our mindset and change our perception of time and space?

SOFTBORDERS exhibition


Soft Borders was the main theme of the 4th Upgrade! International Conference & Festival on New Media Art, that took place in São Paulo, Brazil, October 18-21, 2010. Soft Borders embraced a wide variety of topics, cross-displinary approaches and presentations of cutting edge technologies. This exhibtion has developed as the outcome of the 4th Upgrade! International gathering.



After the research and production of new site-specific works in the first half of the year, from the 6th to the 9th of October we are presenting the conference section of the festival that brings together scholars, artists and all those concerned about these issues: “He Who Dares Wins: City Space as a Field of Struggle”, “Hidden Histories: The Ideologies and Identities of a City”, “Resistance to the Disappearance of Public Space,” and, “In the Gap: Exploring the Social Space Between the Private and the Public.”

Hacking the City Reader


The Book

The project Hacking the City took place on the occasion of the European Capital of Culture RUHR.2010. Twenty museums collaborated in a multifaceted common series of exhibitions called “Mapping the Region”. Museum Folkwang contributed with an experimental project which went far away from traditional museum activities. More than thirteen projects in public space, a “Base-Station” in the museum and a homepage ( were realized.

The reader includes a richly illustrated documentation about all activities and text contributions by artists and theorists, like Boran Burchhardt, Brad Downey, Sabine Fabo, Matthew Fuller, Dagrun Hintze, Anke Hoffmann, Christin Lahr, !Mediengruppe Bitnik, Achim Mohn / Uta Kopp, Richard Reynolds, Felix Stalder, Annette Schemmel, Sabine Maria Schmidt, Jörg Steinmann, Michelle Teran, Annette Wehrmann and Georg Winter.



The project ‘Folgen’ looks at the publication of personal archives and the tension between the public and private experience. This is explored by the personal experience of what it is like to follow somebody, first by monitoring the videos people put online, then following this information to actual physical addresses within the city where these videos were produced. Staged as a performance and installation, Folgen draws on the existing narratives of amateur video makers found on YouTube to build a multi-layered media landscape of Berlin.
