The HeK and 18 other institutions feature contemporary art from the tri-national region. The works shown in «The Worlds They Wanted» investigate and create hybrid spaces and realms, where realities shift. As in Allison’s «Worlds She Wanted» (Philip K. Dick, 1953), the artists create their own dream spaces in which they manipulate, alienate and renegotiate the world we know. Using digital tools, they break through material boundaries and create new spaces for design and action. In these spaces, the works question and shatter the old familiar notions of sound, image, time and movement – or they generate new perspectives on social processes, memories and participation. The exhibition opens up spaces for us to experience these shifted and reconstituted artistic realities.
