This exhibition in two phases presents, developes and picks up strategical inventions and dispositives, that are able to override distances - in a conceptual field, but as well in very concrete forms of translocality as a spacial/temporary dimension. As a start, constellations of artworks are presented that form up around such concrete fields of activities and methodological approaches - device, displacement, lair and journey, activism, flight. They have been generated in a dialogical process with the involved artists, who thus expose themselves to a personal experience, and include agents from external networks.

In the temporary Project Space Gumpendorferstrasse, a disused and radically skeletonized groundfloor space, the works are located in analogous spacial constellations, however communicate comprehensively via the immanent topic of translation - between contexts of provenance, class and gender, between languages, imaginaries and forms of action.

The exhibition setting of "Translocal Manoeuvres" is activated by a series of dialogical guided tours and community-building events. This productive element of the presentation inform the second phase of the project, the "Translocal Archives", which will focus on film and media, urban narratives, mediation and archives:
