_ON the move serie of nomadic exhibitions in public space:
Videos by international artists was projected onto the wall of the Digital Impact Lab Bremen and turned the facade into a temporary art canvas. For the Digital Impact Lab in Bremen it was very interesting to be part of such an international traveling project, to look at the way art in public space can be used to foster discussions about the role of the quarter at night and the possibilities of Digital Art as a creative tool of social change and imagining alternative orders. [description from Digital Impact Lab Bremen]
That night we exhibited two artworks: 6 steps to self-care by no beton talkin gurls collective and Organic Movement by Piotr Pasiewicz.
In 6 steps to self-care it is actually the collective working process that empowered the authors to “scream out loud the communicates we usually tend to shush inside(…) Sometimes offensive, sometimes soft, always assertive, anyway, you can choose your perfect message.” Pasiewicz in his video creates an emotional landscape of the urban tissue with a performing dialogue with the streets, walls, dirt and everything else that’s a part of the city.
Both artworks – somehow connected with their temporary context and social issues they raise – created a great One Night space for discussion with local audience.
