The Arctic Perspective Initiative (API) is a non-profit, international group of individuals and organisations whose goal is to direct attention to the global cultural and ecological significance of the polar region. These are zones of contemporary geopolitical conflict and at the same time potential spaces for transnational and intercultural cooperation and collaboration. The exhibition Arctic Perspective documents the development of a mobile work and habitation system which can be used for nomadic dwelling, environmental monitoring and media based work “on the land”, away from the established Arctic settlements as well as its connection to traditional knowledge and culture. The exhibition focuses on the notions of architecture, geopolitics, autonomy, technology, and landscape while featuring further northern initiatives and projects which reflect these notions.

A cooperation between Hartware MedienKunstVerein, Dortmund (de), Zavod Projekt Atol, Ljubljana (si), The Arts Catalyst, London (uk), C-TASC, Montreal (ca), Lorna, Reykjavik (is)
