Our Mission

We empower inner change

We empower outer progress

We empower human growth

 

Our Vision

We are driven by the realization that we are facing social, intellectual and spiritual challenges and that we need to focus more on better coexistence. With our exhibitions and programs, we explore new ways of meeting these challenges and making them tangible. We want to help shape society and create an open and inspiring world.  

 

Driven by our belief that access to values should be normal, we pursue a minimal entry barrier and create a space for unique experiences. By promoting easy access and providing insight into the process, we create a deep bond between visitors, artists and the subject matter.

Our Values

We believe in the importance of curiosity, cooperation, creativity, participation and diversity. The focus lies on improving mutual understanding and perception of the world on different levels. By combining different disciplines and a dynamic approach, we believe we can create skills that lead to better cooperation.

EVERYONE STARTS SMALL

Values as an inner compass
Values are an essential part of our coexistence. Individual values are never just right or wrong, but require a change of perspective, empathy and openness. Somehow there seems to be a lack of that understanding at the moment. Values are misused in political discourses and the idea of moral high ground. We want to strengthen an inner compass and understanding of each other. PS: We are not perfectly meditated empathy machines, but we are on the way to (our) values. Are you with us? 

IN OVER OUR HEADS

From 2D understanding to sensual exploration
At the moment, values are often discussed theoretically. We want get people into their emotions and feelings again. That doesn’t work without our bodys. Body and mind should understood equally. After long scientific discussions on theories and different approaches we want to get practical. With backgrounds from the media science of the HU and the faculty of cultural communication of the UdK, we have developed an immersive exhibition concept.

MAKE SOME SPACE

Spaces for self-awareness
Exhibitions are active forms of communication, in contrast to film and theatre. Visitors have a more active role and retain their autonomy. Everyone can decide for themselves whether to go left, right or through the middle of the exhibition. Brecht said that spectators are given an investigative, critical attitude towards the process. Ergo: You create your own experience, decide for yourself what you want to take with you and consider whether you want to leave something there – everything is possible. In contrast to the linear communication of language, objects and the staged, spatial relationship to each other create a multilinearity whose multiple offers of signs simultaneously expands into all dimensions of space – fancy, isn’t?
