The debate between sustainability and art spaces in Berlin as in every gentrified city in the world is taking off with a loud sound of increasing rent prices, climate and economic crisis.
Therefore, maximizing spaces and resources, minimizing consumes, reconnecting artists and communities, plugging into nature, rediscovering the human potential and sharing resources is the main purpose of NOWHERE MUSEUM open call.
In NOWHERE MUSEUM artists and creatives are invited to stretch at it's maximum the idea of the art institution to cover and meet the current global and human needs.
Our almost universal tendency to fragment the world and ignore the dynamic interconnectedness of all things is responsible for many of our problems, not only in science but in our lives and our society as well. For instance, we believe we can extract the valuable parts of the earth without affecting the whole. We believe it is possible to treat parts of our body and not be concerned with the whole. We believe we can deal with various problems in our society, such as crime, poverty, and drug addiction, without addressing the problems in our society as a whole, and so on. Our current way of fragmenting the world into parts not only doesn't work, but may even lead to our extinction.
“Is just an idea”, yet exactly by ideas and actualizing prototypes on the basis of our contextual limits and needs it may serve as a tool for recalibration with nature and rediscover our inner potential. By maximizing our resources and actualizing a better future, we want to be an example for the “others” and generate a domino effect of positive change.
The intent is to create a prototype of an ideal sustainable space for creatives, the public and the natural context surrounding. Through a series of weekly meetings, we would like to design from scratch the basis for an art space that fulfills the needs of its participants.
The exhibition could present the creation of this prototype, showing the process of its creation, or present the single artist's contributions. By taking in consideration all the aspects of an art institution such as the economy, communication, art management, relation with the public, hierarchies and other relevant components, creatives are invited to zoom out from their personal identity and incorporate the multifaceted aspect of co-creation and community.
Co-create means confrontation, sharing, enjoying the process, welcome diversity, heal conflicts, communication and benefit from the results.
