Cultural Institution for Everyone - Artfremde Einrichtung

Not curators and artists decide what counts as art and useful but everybody works and decides together. Artfremde Einrichtung is an invitation to questioning the definition of art and the social status of cultural work.

10 years of zeitraumexit in the Jungbusch. 10 years of cultural work for public utility. But what exactly is the utility of this? What does the public need here and now? And most of all: Who is the public?
From October 2017 until June 2018 zeitraumexit offers its space and professional support to everybody. Business-start-up, workshop, art project, hair salon, campaign office or library: for 4 weeks, everything is possible. Free of rent and with the support of the whole team. We offer all performance and gallery spaces in the building, technical equipment and infrastructure for one month to anybody who has a project or idea to realize or simply needs some free space. 4 weeks’ time, 3 public spaces, 9 employees, 0 rent: The cultural institution as common. Only requirement: the public decides whose turn it is. The rules for the decision making were set by everyone in a public convent.

With support from local and national partners zeitraumexit turns the institution upside down: Not curators and artists decide what counts as art and useful but everybody works and decides together. Artfremde Einrichtung is an invitation to questioning the definition of art and the social status of cultural work as well as finding new ways to deal with the underfunding of the arts in a creative manner.
