global aCtIVISm

global activism, Occupy movement, Karlsruhe

Exhibition, ZKM Karlsruhe, Germany, until 30 March 2014.
The exhibition global aCtIVISm is dedicated to the artistic form of expression politically inspired by actions, demonstrations, and performances in the public sphere, which draw attention to socio-political grievances and call for changes in existing conditions. By means of objects, as well as photographic, cinematographic, videographic, and mass medial documents, the show presents global activism as being the first novel art form of the 21st century. This serves as a prelude to the exhibition marathon called Globale, scheduled to be held in 2015, on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the founding of the city of Karlsruhe.
