The art works in Abstract Possible: The Birmingham Beat at Eastside Projects in Birmingham involve and complicate the three strands of abstraction: formal abstraction, economic abstraction and social abstraction. However, special emphasis is placed on economic abstraction, through a program of events curated by the team of Eastside Projects.
Abstract Possible is a research project that aims to explore notions of abstraction, taking contemporary art as its starting point. Since 2010 the project has developed in four cities: at Malmö konsthall in Malmö, Museo Tamayo in Mexico City, the White Space in Zurich and in Stockholm at Tensta konsthall, Bukowskis auction house and the Center for Fashion Studies, the University of Stockholm, respectively. A further iteration is planned at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart in Stuttgart. www.abstractpossible.org
