These days, more than half of the planet´s population lives in cities. Whatever the future holds: The way we will live tomorrow will largely depend on how city life is changing today and how it will develop in times of global crises. Artists are among those who sense those changes very clearly. They transform their vision into “images”, and at times work in social or participatory formats in the midst of our societies. What does their visual practise look like, and what can be learned from their social practise?
These questions will guide a collaborative digital exhibition to be prepared on the basis of a virtual residency, the “Virtual Artists´ Assembly” (VITAA). VITAA, along with the exhibition-to-be, will be curated by Anastasia Patsey who manages the SPAR project and who is part of the curatorial team at the artists-run space “Puschkinskay 10”.
