Cooperation: Passer la frontière des doutes - Crossing Boundaries of Doubt

.

Info   Opening: Saturday, December 13, 2014, 7 p.m., with live interventions and a readings

.

Crossing-boundaries-of-doubt.net is an online platform and poetic, critical collection that arose through artistic research conducted in Cameroon and Germany in 2013–14, which is now being continued transnationally.

In their complex worlds, which are influenced by colonial history, phantasms of consumption, and the fragility of social structures, the artists investigate their reciprocal relationships and their conceptions of one another. They speak about prevailing conditions, the realities of life, and the everyday entanglement and boundaries of their societies, which are immersed in radical social and economic upheaval.

The participants are questing for new languages, for new utopian places. They describe rituals of violence, the act of capitalizing on human relations. And they speak of a need for self-determination and shared moments of unity.

As an ongoing transnational project dealing with relations between the Global South and the Global North, the collection is continually growing through new artistic contributions by artists invited to participate from different countries. The multilingual platform can be used as a poetic space of agency outside of an institutional context.

Live events accompany the project, such as interventions, performances, concerts, and conversations. They tie into narrative digital space by way of direct physical encounters.

The presentation shown in the “Querungen” project space at the Württembergischer Kunstverein offers insight into the various artistic explorations.
