    The research and exhibition project “Politics of Sharing”, which has been developed in collaboration with Artspace New Zealand, presents various perspectives on practices of sharing. It brings together artistic and sociological positions from the Pacific region with European points of views. For example, examining knowledge and value systems of the Māori people in New Zealand leads us to new meanings of property, ownership and a culture of welcome.

    The exhibition “Politics of Sharing / On Collective Wisdom” features new works by Lonnie Hutchinson, a new performance by Kalisolaite ‘Uhila examines differences and connections between Western and Polynesian concepts of time.
