About KOW ISSUES
What are KOW ISSUES?
KOW ISSUES link methodological questions of visual arts with societal topics. They ask for practical and intellectual consequences of artistic policies. We aim at creating accessible project formats in which art helps to profile problems of common interest. Through KOW ISSUES, we commit to progressive change in the vocabulary and tone of the self-descriptions by which communities relate, means are shared and lives are shaped. The project‘s formats relate to intentions and occasions: They may be exhibitions or lectures, art fairs or screenings, parties or books. KOW ISSUES are unique productions initiated and carried out by KOW. Some of them can travel to other venues, some can be acquired as editions or as singular items. KOW ISSUES may come out as booklets when needed to help make things public.
