FEX. platform and exhibitions

The End of the World as we know it is selected for the platform and exhibitions of FEX. (DE)

FEX. is an independent and non-commercial online and exhibition platform for contemporary media art. Their goal is to promote video art, animation, experimental video or sound art in public space and attract new audiences by organizing exhibitions in unconventional spaces and locations, such as shop windows and empty business premises, walls and house facades or temporarily unused advertising spaces. All artist profiles and artworks are also presented on their platform in an online exhibition.

VIDEOFENSTER 2021

‘outside’ will be featured in VIDEOFENSTER 2021, an immersive urban video-art and film project that will take place in Cologne’s (DE) Ehrenfeld neighbourhood, from the 22nd to the 27th of June 2021.

The event will run in the daytime between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and from 10 p.m. to midnight during the night. Ehrenfeld’s streets will come alive thanks to a trail of audio-visual pieces by international artists and filmmakers. The theme connecting all the pieces is lockdown and isolation during the covid-19 pandemic.

New RIOT POEM

I created a new RIOT POEM that is published by @riotpoems on Instagram today. The text is based on BBC News article “Myanmar coup: The young rebels risking their lives for the future”, cut-up by me, graphic setup by @riotpoems.
