Out of Scale
A citywide exhibition,
for free (99%)

A mourning on the field, an object looted from overseas, a necklace for a commemoration. Capturing all kinds of information, algorithmic processes scale up and down what we see in the city – setting terms for how we move around and interact. Asking at what scale we view the city from, Out of Scale is a citywide exhibition taking place within Berlin’s networks and infrastructures.

Distributed and embedded across eBay Kleinanzeigen, Tempelhofer Feld, transmediale warehouse, the U-Bahn, and Spätis, the exhibition features work from over twenty international and Berlin-based artists, who question our reliance on the technological organisation of the city, and generate new perspectives through inquiries into environmental ruin, bio-surveillance politics, anticolonial resistance, and other-than-human identities.

During Out of Scale, transmediale studio transforms into transmediale warehouse acting as an exhibition space, storage room, and pickup spot, where the logistics of Out of Scale come together.
