On the Swarm as Principle & Phenomenon
7 September - 27 October 2013

An exhibition with Julian Charrière, Nadine Fecht, Susanne Kriemann, George Maciunas, Yutaka Makino, Benjamin Patterson, Bettina Pousttchi, Radek Community, Man Ray, Mark Thompson.

move - align - avoid: To orientate yourself by the movement of your direct neighbours, to follow them and, at the same time, to not come too close to them. The naturale spectacle of a swarm is based on these three rules. The exhibition engages with this formation as a phenomenon between chaos and order; as well as with the principle that is already being used as a model of cultural transmission of collective dynamic forms of organization.
