Cultural Friendship: This is what < rotor > calls long-term cooperation with befriended organisations; in this case it is NOS in Bologna—Amicizia culturale! It started with curatorial research, followed by artist residencies and a student project.

In the exhibition with contributions by artists from Bologna / Italy, and Graz / Austria, lines of connection between the works unfold, tipping points and discontinuities become perceptible. The potential is inherent in the artworks to give shape to the step into the unknown in the search for new experiences and insights that the present—every present—needs.

The narrative title of the project is inspired by the theatre innovator and writer Antonin Artaud.
