Tracing Mobility sets out to examine how electronic networks and mobile media are transforming our conceptions of time, space and distance.

The exhibition presents the positions of 16 international artists who trace the shifting terrain of global and local mobility, virtual and material movement. They use varying approaches to pursue the numerous questions of our present's mobility: Where can we escape to when online and offline worlds converge? What does the movement of a body in a landscape indicate when every point of the earth is within reach through the aid of digital technology? How do mobile devices and media alter our mindset and change our perception of time and space?

In order to position themselves within this dynamic topography and to find possible points of exit, the exhibiting artists have developed installations, videos, performances and paintings, iPhone apps, maps and open-source collaborations.

About Trampoline

Tracing Mobility is a project by Trampoline, agency for Art and Media, founded by artists Anette Schäfer and Miles Chalcraft in 1997. Trampoline is based in Nottingham and runs a second office in Berlin since 2000. The organisation supports and develops artists working at the critical edge of emerging technology and digital culture. Over the last 14 years, Trampoline gained international reputation with its diverse events and programmes, especially with its Radiator Festival: International Festival for Art and Media in Nottingham (2000, 2003, 2005, 2009) and the Radiator Symposium (2005, 2009).

Tracing Mobility Berlin is the final event of a Europe-wide project that encompassed residencies, workshops, events, exhibitions and a symposium. After a series of events in the UK, in Warsaw (PL) and at the Croatian coast, Tracing Mobility Berlin presents the results of this two year long process.
