arttransponder provides a platform for discussions and exchange focussing on interdisciplinary, site specific, participatory and temporary art practices.
Our emphasis is on art which integrates the complexity of production, presentation and reception, as well as locates itself within and links to current discourses and theory. Intention is, to broaden definitions and parameters of art production and its operating system and challenge common modes of practice and presentation. Therefore we maintain an active exchange with international artists, initiatives, scientists and theoreticians. arttransponder develops and organizes art projects, exhibitions, workshops, screenings, lectures, talks and panel discussions on the interface to architecture, science, natural science, theory and politics. Our events take place decentred and central. Additionally we are working on expanding a reference library.
