We are living through a technological revolution that is profoundly altering society, ecology, and even subjectivity. Contemporary artists must attempt to reflect upon and critique the texture of these changes, offer daring insights into our relationship with them, and imagine alternatives. The most relevant artistic practices of today forge new languages as they pursue these tasks. Import Projects is committed to the problematics of the networked era and the artists who address it.

Import Projects is a nonprofit curatorial initiative providing an experimental platform for contemporary cultural production and debate, primarily exploring the intersection of technology, personal identity and community.

Since 2012, Import Projects has established itself as a platform for probing those intersections – showcasing pioneering artists in our post-digital landscape. Import Projects program has received critical plaudits from media including Frieze Magazin (GB/D), Arte (FR/DE), Spiegel (DE), Rhizome (US), Artforum (GB/D/US) through its exhibitions, screenings, performance and symposia, as well as partnerships with organisations including Berlin Social Media Week 2012, Berlin Art Week 2014, Berlin Project Space Festival 2014/2015 and Cycle Music and Art Festival in 2015 and ongoing.

Their other recent joint projects include the Antarctic Pavilion at the Venice Biennale of Architecture (2014) and Art (2015) and The Cycle Music and Art Festival in Iceland last year and continuing this year. In Spring 2017 they will organise the 1st Antarctic Biennale which will take place on board a Russian scientific research ship and on the world’s southern-most continent.
