MIT ALLEM RECHNEN / FACE THE UNEXPECTED
Media art from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania
A cooperation between Hartware MedienKunstVerein and Museum am Ostwall
May 14 - July 23, 2004
Museum am Ostwall and PHOENIX Halle Dortmund
Opening: Sunday, May 14, 2006, 11:30, Museum am Ostwall, Dortmund

The exhibition at the Museum am Ostwall and the PHOENIX Halle Dortmund presents 29 installations, videos, and photo series by 23 artists from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The exhibition's German title "mit allem rechnen" can be understood in both figurative and literal senses. "To count on anything" means to be ready for anything at a time in which anything is (or seems) possible.

Therefore many works refer to personal stories and individual experiences in the context of the collective past, which is largely connected to state socialism. But the title also has an economic meaning. To have to "count on anything" refers to the extreme pressure for individuals and society to adapt, succeed, and survive under conditions of radical transition from a planned state socialist economy as a part of the Soviet Union to a free market economy in the framework of the European Union.

A bilingual catalogue (German/English), edited by Inke Arns and Kurt Wettengl, has been published by Revolver - Archiv fuer aktuelle Kunst, Frankfurt am Main (160 pp., colour illustrations), with contributions by Inke Arns, Anders Haerm, Lolita Jablonskiene, Mara Traumane and Kurt Wettengl. The catalogue costs 18 Euro at Museum am Ostwall / PHOENIX Halle Dortmund and can be ordered at Revolver (www.revolver-books.de).
