Art Mediation

CONCEPT

“LET THEM PLAY” The projects of Inhale! are characterized by democratic knowledge sharing, critical attitude, and community-based creative strategies. The mediation programs are aligned with these principles. Our mission is to present contemporary art as something other than an abstract field that is difficult to interpret and that only engages a small social sphere. The challenge of mediation is to show how the devices of contemporary art help us in thinking about our common issues, and what kinds of creative research and problem-solving experiments are made possible by creative freedom. MORE OFF-Biennale’s 2021 projects reflect on social and ecological questions that are particularly relevant for the younger generations. Artificial intelligence, digital networks, ecological footprint, the critique of consumer culture, and the real or hypothetical possibilities of experiencing freedom and community are all such concepts that we must interpret, take apart, twist and turn, play with together with the emerging generation. This year’s theme has become particularly timely due to the difficulties presented by the previous year. The relocation of community situations into the digital space has made creative work and organizing difficult for all. The OFF-Biennale team continues to work towards offering a diversity of programs that also reflect on the current situation and are broadly accessible.
