The first lockdown has driven us to a fighting spirit. Now, the second one feels more like a great melancholy. We would like to see art and culture as the very elixir of life in society. It should not occur only in Sunday speeches, not only in good times, but also, and especially in difficult times and times of crisis. Culture is a fuel for social development. But with the lockdown, an entire industry is muted without any ado. We strongly believe that we need culture to bring color and emotional warmth to our everyday life. Hence Window of FAME becomes active and opens its window for female artists.

The Union is a newly created Oslo-based organization (2020), an artist-run mediation platform consisting of Slovakian Martinka Bobrikova, Peruvian-Palestinian Rodrigo Ghattas-Pérez, and Spanish Oscar de Carmen. One of the core missions of The Union is to explore new socio-political realities through digital and physical activism and creative-citizen movements: the impact of Covid-19 – for artists, activists, thinkers, and creative minds – and its aftermath, being one of the most urgent ones. The Union´s laid-back projects target power structures in institutions, triggering loosen-up critical reflections through the use of unconventional, domestic, and experiential practices. We work to create other valorization structures for art, life, and culture, and to reshape the publics’ interaction; to actively participate in the collective design of new forms of care, participation, and empowerment through the arts. Whilst we cultivate countercultures and creative-civil community engagement.

Edge to Edge is a ViCA initiative that puts into action our policy of continual push to collaborate with artists and institutions across borders. In the first Edge to Edge show throughout 2019 we showed American and Estonian art in the US in our gallery, then did the same in Estonia over the summer. Each country being one edge of western civilization. Then we turned to our southern neighbor, and used the border as a metaphor for Edge to Edge, and brought 12 Mexican artists to the U.S. for the first time. In another participating gallery (in Venice, CA) closed for during the outbreak, we’ll install 12 artists from Japan in a few days, then show the work virtually online. In 2021 (postponed from this coming May) 12 galleries in our building will be hosting an equal number of galleries or more from Berlin. What ideas do you have? How can we help? We have a great space and we’d love to see you here.

Oika is a small but growing community of artists, storytellers and media-makers dedicated to manifesting ecological intelligence through our work. We are creating a new culture in alliance and alignment with nature. Oika elevates the value of art by aligning it with the power and abundance of nature. Our artists are in deep communion with nature and manifest ecological intelligence in their creations. This alliance between nature and artist affords a moral, ecological imperative. “Oikadelic” art brings ecological intelligence to culture through nature and ecological healing to nature through culture. Into the Artmosphere is Oika’s core educational program for artists, storytellers and media-makers. Throughout 2020 Dr. Rich Blundell is traveling to diverse artistic communities introducing the principles and practices of ecological intelligence. We teach artists how to practice Oika for creative inspiration and give them the language, concepts, and confidence to publicly communicate the eco-cultural value of their work Oika seeks to surface and capacity-build ecologically intelligent artistic communities. Into the Artmosphere presents a progressive on-ramp for artists and curators to get involved. Responding appropriately to the climate crisis requires a whole new category of media-maker. In addition to specialized technical skills, we need new creative professionals with a fine-tuned […]

ERGO Collective is a creative platform founded on the premise of collaboration. We approach collective creativity as mode of encouraging dialogue and triggering stimulating ideas on the critique and collapse of borders between Art’s disciplines. Our team is formed by permanent and guest artists and other curious people from various places and spaces. Our journey began in a nomadic manner with an emphasis on site specific shows. Today ERGO occupies a physical space in Athens making its first steps as an artist-run-space. Our new space allows the collective to be more spontaneous on realizing projects, ideas and activities. To have a home, means to be a host and therefore ERGO is welcoming creatives from around the world to share and propose ideas on exhibitions, performances, workshops, symposia, screenings or any other intriguing event. ERGO Collective (Non-profit Organization) was initiated in September 2017.
