What is contemporary?
How do people implement their self-imposed aspiration to be contemporary – to act within their time – how do they reflect their own occupation, their position and the now? What are the manifestations and the materializations of our time?
Superprojekt is a provisional stage at Depot Basel, exploring the question ‘What is contemporary?’ by different means: The written and the spoken word, the physical item, the body language, and the public’s reactions, condensed into a timeframe, mirroring the contributors’ personal and subjective views.
What are possible materialisations of our time? Each of the contributors manifested answers in and through their work. Attending the performances is essential for perceiving and understanding the works.The exhibition space is the stage and vice versa.
