Karma Ltd. Extended is a curatorial collaboration between Petra Poelzl, Pauline Doutreluingne and Jana J. Haeckel that refers to the connections and effects of the digital transformation on the political, social, ecological and economic living conditions of the present. It puts the human imagination centerfold by focusing on artistic narratives about future possibilities of coexistence. In their research, the curators search for artistic trajectories and visions that broaden our senses for unexpected fantasies. They focus on the acting subject and design a wide variety of counter-perspectives and alternatives. Karma Ltd. Extended is political, poetic, performative, intersectional-feminist, experimental and much more.

CHAPTER #3: Variations on Time

There is neither source nor end, for all things are in the Center of Time. As all the stars may be reflected in a round raindrop falling in the night: so too do all the stars reflect the raindrop. There is neither darkness nor death, for all things are, in the Light of the Moment, and their end and their beginning are one.

CHAPTER #6: Species of Spaces

22.09 – 28.10.2018

When nothing arrests our gaze, it carries a very long way. But if it meets with nothing, it sees nothing; it sees only what it meets. Space is what arrests our gaze, what our sight stumbles over: the obstacle, bricks, an angle, a vanishing point. Space is when it makes an angle, when it stops, when we have to turn for it to start off again. 

Georges Perec, Species of Spaces, p. 80.

Anna Zett, Heba Y. Amin, Deniz Gül, Lawrence Abu Hamdan
