Which modes of operation are relevant for today’s visual arts organizations, museums and archive institutions and, more significantly, in which ways do these various modes of operation share similarities with and differ from one another? What kind of processes and dynamics shape up the fellowship periods, exhibition projects and institutional structures at large?
One of the aims of the MOBIUS program is to formulate answers to these questions and share the knowledge. Not a firm believer in dogmas, Mobius celebrates variety. Each participant of the program produces an in-depth essay concerning his/her fellowship period and the collaboration with the hosting organization in general.
Documentation of the experiences and realized projects will be gathered first in the program’s online archive. Later on this information will be edited into a publication that aims to unveil and discuss some of the structures, processes, possibilities and challenges that lay on the basis of today’s visual arts institutions, museums and archives.
