EXCHANGE BERLIN is an international exposition of artist/curator-led presentations loosely underpinnned by ideas around transnational localism.
EXCHANGE BERLIN encourages integrated, collaborative and even spontaneous modes of exhibition and critical evaluation. The aim of all Sluice projects is to offer an independent alternative to the dominant organisational paradigms whilst demonstrating a belief in the importance of international engagement for otherwise local projects.
EXCHANGE BERLIN was borne from previous manifestations in NY under the title Exchange Rates (co-created by Sluice, Centotto and Theodore:Art). The expo’s first iteration was in October 2014 in Bushwick, Brooklyn. A second Exchange Rates took place in October 2016, again in Bushwick. The EXCHANGE exhibitions now travel to a new city every two years. In addition to the EXCHANGE project, Sluice is also responsible for the London based Sluice Biennial and the international Sluice magazine.
For each EXCHANGE project, Sluice is invited by and partners with an organisation from a host city, for EXCHANGE BERLIN Sluice has partnered with The Institut für Alles Mögliche, an artistic project that sets about questioning, scrutinising and probing the institutionalisation and presentation of contemporary art. These mostly playful experiments deal with interrogations of the ‘art space’, the operatings of the ‘project space’ and ideas surrounding the ‘exhibition’. The central concept for both Sluice and The Institut für Alles Mögliche is to develop spaces of possibility in which exchange and experiences can take place and space where artistic activity can come in to being.
