The currently ongoing research project 'Herzblutwiese Stadtwerkstatt' addresses feminism, equal rights and equality in a sphere of aesthetic innovation, social revolt, subversive power as well as artistic and technological developments. It is about specifics of the scene, larger social questions and artistic, social and emancipative potentials that are carried forward into the present.

The Red Thread of New Media Art

Under the title Red Thread of New Media Art, various artists are invited to select images from the last 40 years from the STWST archive and their own archives in order to present different lines of development in the environment of the STWST and to contextualise them with their own works.
