Over the past two years, the interdisciplinary project Transient Spaces – The Tourist Syndrome has been addressing current issues of mobility through workshops, seminars, lectures, artist-in-residence programmes and exhibitions in Italy, Lithuania, Romania and Germany. The themes examined by artists and cultural producers in the context of the project include tourism, migration, and new forms of flexible living and being permanently on the move.

The exhibition in Berlin, taking place at NGBK and Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien is concluding the two-year project and offers a multifaceted parcours through the topics via a selection of 25 artistic positions.
The artists and groups involved come from seventeen countries, of which twelve are in Europe. In their works they make use of research, documentation, fiction, design, irony, invention and a wide variety of media. The exhibition also features projects produced within the Transient Spaces – The Tourist Syndrome residency and production grant scheme. Parallel to the exhibition, the programme of events includes performances, discussions, and a film programme in cooperation with Ballhaus Naunynstrasse, Berlin.
