Gallery festival OtherWise / Muun viisautta is a joint exhibition of eleven performance artists combining installations, performances, lectures, conversations and a celebration of their newly published book, Otherwise-Muun Viisautta.
The book is a gathering of eleven artistic perspectives, and art practices. It uncovers eleven different kinds of entanglements with the world and showcases eleven artistic ways to interact, to inhabit and move with(in) our critical times and catastrophic places. For five days the writings and pictures in the book spread through the space as installations, performances, discussions and performative gestures. The festival wildly and seriously celebrates the power of artistic thought and action: Art lives on, leaves traces, takes action, works and observes, touches, reaches and keeps on building a more multi-sensory and multilingual world.
