Fast paced, frenetic, sprawling: London is an eclectic place. It is so vast and complex in its stuctures that our visual and stuctural perception of the city is never absolute. Penetrating its surface in order to get to the substance of what millions of people call their home can be difficult, especially for someone coming from a foreign place.London provides the common ground for the seven artists chosen and supported by the German Academic Exchange servide (DAAD). Ranging from the microscopic scale of textures to the macroscopic, existential scale of communities and relationships, each of their practices approaches the foreign surface of the city differently.
