30 April – 22 May 2022
Opening: 29 April 2022 – 7 p.m.
TERRARISTA TV emerged as a result of the pandemic and experiments with livestreams as a format for a time-based exhibition practice. Initially based in the Virtual Realities class at the Kunsthochschule Kassel, it now consists of enthusiasts from club music, visual arts, video collage, 3D and digital art, illustration, curation, activism and self-organisation, and theory.
With a predominantly digital presence, drawing on tools such as Twitch, Discord and Instagram, TERRARISTA TV focuses on networking communities outside institutional hierarchies. In our collaborative practice, we organise, host and curate livestream events: formed through collaboration with accomplices, we interweave their films, video works, performances and online workshops with curatorial frameworks we produce to compose audiovisual worlds.
TERRARISTA TV is currently working on the former colonial archive in Witzenhausen with colonial memories, bottomlessness, decay ∫ archives, earth, temporalities, historical rhetoric, and will open auditory inventory drawers in the municipality of Cologne: How can curatorial frames work as curated forms?
