Taking its departure point from exploring the reciprocal relationships between artistic practice and the contexts of its realization, Satellite Affects and Other Lines of Flight presents the works of the eight artists and the artist collective, who since 2010 participated in District’s Studio Grant program.

The studio inhabited by the artists for six months at a time is programmatically named the ‘Satellite’. In the frame of the exhibition the satellite serves as a metaphorical vehicle to link aesthetic border transgressions, nomadic temporalities, unleashed conceptions of space and resistant politics of the peripheral along an erratic orbit.

Satellite Affects transfers the reflective circular movements of artificial celestial bodies and planetary satellites on the approaches for research, tangency and materialization developed by the artists and District as an art space. Beyond dialectic and anthropocentric categories, the title simultaneously refers to social complexity and the cosmic beauty of ambiguous scenarios populated by animated objects, embodiments of feeling technology and other inbetween subjects.

Curators: Susanne Husse & Andrea Caroline Keppler

The studio grant was initiated by Susanne Modelsee, DISTRICT’s first Artistic Director, in 2010 and established in its current form with an independent jury by her successor Ulrike Gerhardt.
