LOST SENSES is a living space for encounters, open every day to everyone. Revisiting the exhibition as format and exploring the gallery space as a fluid cultural site, artists and practitioners will work in close relation with people reorganising the self’s relation to perception. The purpose is to create new collective experiences and ways to actively participate in everyday life. The notion of direct material experience in modernity has fallen into a semantic crisis, which does not leave enough space for live moments of embodiment.
Laboratory of Dark Matters is a response by artists to scientific investigations into the unknown nature of the universe. Through a programme of exhibitions, workshops, talks and discussions it invites everyone driven by curiosity to explore fundamental questions about matter and consciousness.
Touch Sensitive is a series of individual art events, exploring representations of “female” bodies by dismantling the body as a category or “whole” and creating open channels for discourse. The body can be imagined as a database, a store accessible in various ways. Each iteration in the series is an entry into this vast, every increasing database through the concept of touch.

Secret Agent is a group exhibition composed from the viewpoint of feminist authorship in contemporary art practices. The artists in the exhibition actively challenge the institutional structure of history and patriarchal authority – and imagine alternative narratives, often through the specificity of lens-based media.
I’m Not Done is a project instigated by conversations between Kathrin Bonnar and Cherelle Sappleton. The exhibitions and events developed from the project look curiously at the process of art making; thinking about decision making processes, identity and authorship, and ask artists to exhibit work and concepts un-resolved to themselves.
The contemporary world presents us with goods and services whose means of production and circulation are often taken for granted by the end user. How are power relations reproducing meanings and discourses in the workplace and how is this reflected within human communication in general?
