an invitation to empower ourselves
The series was an exercise in mutual empowerment, which was implemented under the conditions of empathy, self-empowerment and joy.
We are asked to evaluate and redefine the value of collecting art.
What can be learned from the past and what must be unlearned?
Who decides which works are worth to collect and under which premisses? Let us reassess.
To evaluate and change the ideas on collecting, including its political and social aspects, was the goal of X/CHANGE. Which possibilities should be considered, which mechanisms must be reconsidered? Let us explore and go paths of rethinking together. Can we change paradigms to rewrite history and influence the future? What course must be set to enable a reassessment of the status quo?
Speakers from various disciplines did in this series present their findings for open discussion in public talks.
How do I build up a private collection and under which premises?
How can I sustainably preserve my estate for the future?
We invited you to participate in the discussions on long-term solutions for self-empowerment.
For each event artists were invited to participate in an artwork exchange format. The works were presented outside conventional, normative exhibition practices.
The claim of this event was not to be a fully transferable model for the future. It was intended to be a collective exploration of the ideas of self-empowerment and consciousness.
We propose the value of the energy of exchange.
