THE TIME HAS COME TO SPORE

In the heat of the summer of 2021, 65 people came together to create a new solar community: collaborating, experimenting, and generating cultures between arts and ecology, they built temporary oases in the middle of an anthropogenic desert. 

 

SHOWCASING THE FRUITS OF THE FED NETWORK

Reflecting upon the experiments of the LIOS labs artist residencies, as well as manifesting the present urge for collective action, Beyond the Sand opens a playground: a living exhibition: a deep hangout and a soft exploration of postures, gestures, processes and artifacts brought to life by a group of sandy researchers, artists, activists, poets and musicians.

 

SEEKING NEW WORLD IN THE GRAIN OF SAND

This gathering holds a program of interactive workshops, performances, and participatory rituals embedded in the augmented world of Tête Gallery and other locations around Berlin. 

 

AN INVITATION TO CO-CREATION OF 5-DIMENSIONAL REALITY

While the desert experiment might be limited in its locality, the ethos of the project can be translated to any number of anthropogenic ecologies. How do we relate beyond the human system? An invitation arrives to define a world where all beings can thrive.
