‚Field Foraging‘ stands for the exchange and expansion of individual patterns of thought and action in experimental collaboration. The artists in this exhibition cooperate within a wide range of disciplines: In an extensive installation, they bring together their mutual findings and sometimes controversial reflections on the interplay of systematic classification and coincidence, self-observation and observation by others, acquisition of knowledge and artistic processes of form-finding.

The point of departure for this collaborative work is found in a comprehensive collection of materials comprising collectively produced drawings, collages, videos, audio files, and texts. This body of work was initially built up from a gathering of jointly produced assemblages of drawings and installations and was subsequently expanded to rescaling and transformation through corona-compatible digital means.

The exhibition combines individual and collective forms of production. Its framework enables collaborative interaction, where the aesthetic experience can circulate across spatial shift and repetition freely from one place to another. Thus, this collaborative piece, voiced as a hybrid between documentation and work of art, is a visual statement for shared activity that, in turn, is directly accessible to viewers.
