Circa 106

  • Center for International Research and Collaborative Art

The space is located in the city of Bremen, in Bismarckstraße 106 and since 2017 has been run by different student groups from the University of the Arts (Hochschule für Künste Bremen). 

The focus of the space is to open a discourse of inclusivity for cultural practitioners from all backgrounds, to share ideas and disciplines around a diverse set of interests. The space initiates an open and welcoming platform for everyone to feel actively heard.

Throughout the year there will be a series of open calls which address a number of subjects by situating the space within the city. Circa 106 will also be open to proposals for workshops, lectures, film screenings or other events that contribute to the community.

The collaborative aspect of the space is reflected as well within the program Version Room, that will take place on a monthly basis where The Dynamic Archive will exhibit its components and versions. In line with the context of Circa 106, The Dynamic Archive sets out to discuss, probe, and develop the questions of collaborative work and sharing.

Eröffnung der zweiten Serie von Online-Ausstellungen 

How re-situate the Collective-the Body-the Place?

Die Ausstellung beschäftigt sich mit den politischen Implikationen und Strategien der Neusituierung als Kollektivkörper. Teil davon sind zwei Online-Ausstellungen und dazugehörige Gespräche zwischen den Künstler*innen, die nacheinander stattfinden werden. 

Die erste Ausstellung wird Arbeiten von Diogo da Cruz, Clara Osterburg Correa (nn) und Renen Itzhaki zeigen.

Diese Onlineexhibtion zeigt Möglichkeiten und diskutiert, was es heißt sich von innen heraus zu bewegen und zu organisieren, indem wir auf der Praxis der horizontalen Konversation bestehen und als transnationale Gemeinschaft handeln. Hier geht es zur


Das Online-Gespräch zum Thema und zu den Arbeiten der Künstler*innen, welches am 17. April veröffentlicht wird, können Sie hier sehen:

#1 Online conversation

The conversation between Diogo da Cruz, Clara Osterburg, Renen Itzhaki, Aria Farajnezhad and Victor Artiga Rodriguez is about the discrepancy between the local and the universal and the practices each one might evoke. Especially in a time of a pandemic in which we are all facing the planetary scale impact, how can we act as a collective body? In each one of the works we find exciting moments that correspond well with the question. So the conversation has been moving round the individual works in response to the problematic of the organization and mobilization in big numbers. Together with the artists we wanted to wrestle with the topic and see if we can find alternatives which would not result into the dichotomy of sectarianism/authoritarianism.

Die zweite Online-Ausstellung umfasst Werke von Timo Hoheisel, Manana Kobakhidze und Delia Jürgens + Tarik Kentouche (collaborating in Display XYZ). Hier geht es zur

Ausstellung (ab dem 17.04.)

The second group online exhibition, which addresses the limitations of the image and it’s constitution. the capacities of the already existing video capturing devices, the multiplicities of the viewpoints in order to map a dynamic representation of the space. looking into the capturing apparatuses, or the photographic devices which are impacting the environment, the lived organisms. This will include the online exhibitions and dialogues, which will take place consecutively. 

Hier Können Sie das zweite Gespräch zwischen Delia Jürgens, Tarik Kentouche, Manana Kobakhidze Aria Farajnezhad and Victor Artiga Rodriguez ab dem 24.04. erleben:

Structures that Initiate Change

Examining organic, dynamic, planned and serendipitous relationships between objects, people, resources, materials and themes, this pin board is an insight into various experimental frameworks being develop by students taking Structures That Initiate Change. Giving the current change in the design of physical interaction due to the ongoing pandemic, the work here reflects a digital dimension of work-in-progress or completed works that came from weeks of dialog around thematic modules for designing change and practical methods engineered towards some change. These insights or snapshots highlight the obvious effects of abrupt change in the rituals of work for digital artists whilst revealing the dynamism of ideas to morph and occupy digital space. This presentation in a shared digital format also questions the politics of space, revealing fresh insights into paths for altering the traditional methods for presenting ideas. 

This project was initiated and guided by Irena Kukrić and Prof.Dr. Andrea Sick and supported by the Digital Media Program at the Hochschule für Künste Bremen. You can visit the Project hier:
