transmediale 2018 face value presents the experimental exhibition format "Territories of Complicity", curated by Inga Seidler, as part of the exhibition program.


Territories of Complicity is an experimental space of artistic research designed in reference to the freeport—a logistics hub and high-security storage space that allows free trade outside of national regulation. 

In an emulation of the freeport’s logistic setup, the works will be organized and displayed in boxes, accompanied by contextualizing research and documentation to be “unpacked” by the visitors and further activated by the artists in the form of screenings, performances, workshops, and discussions. The image of the freeport is used as a way of exploring how covert systems, technological infrastructures, as well as territories of exception within globalized networks of exchange and traffic shape our economic, socio-political realities. The featured projects investigate such structures and the various conditions that determine the circulation of goods as well as movements of people. They explore how mobility creates economic value, and how it is linked to our notion of who and what is valuable.
Participating artists: Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Zach Blas, CAMP (Shaina Anand & Ashok Sukumaran), Demystification Committee, Forensic Oceanography (Lorenzo Pezzani & Charles Heller), Femke Herregraven, Yuri Pattison, Lisa Rave
