Kunsthalle Athena is moving.
As a non-static platform we feel it’s about time to transform, and to grow. But before that, we would like to celebrate with you the end of our seeding period with a three-day series of lectures, screenings and performances, to say goodbye to the beloved building that hosted all our projects for the last five years and became part of our identity.  (more…)

(Homo)normative campaigns for ‘freedom’ and hollow calls for ‘equal rights’ are robotically rehashed in these conditional utopias.

For a long period of time, Nasan Tur has focussed his research on the power of political speeches and how they are presented.
