In recent years, the rapid pace of technological progress and increasing digitalisation have not only had a major impact on contemporary society, but also continue to evoke old and new issues in a wide range of art-related topics. New technologies and their application for artistic practices have greatly expanded the variety of media and creative possibilities. Consequently, artists in this field are continually testing the boundaries of what is conventionally considered "art" while also developing a new set of aesthetics.
Given these rapid changes in the art world, Roehrs & Boetsch has devoted its programme since 2016 to exploring digitalisation and its implications for society. Our exhibitions and projects explore and critically reflect the relationship between contemporary culture, digitalisation and art in a range of media and techniques. Furthermore, we take great interest in actively discussing and developing new forms of exhibiting artworks where conventional methods have failed. Our overriding mission is to create spaces for critical reflection on current and past developments as well as provide a platform for new positions in art.
With Humans Not Invited - IRL by Damjanski we have closed the space at Bachstrasse 9 at the end of April 2020 to try on new curatorial approaches. The Simple Net Art Diagram, created in 1997 by the duo of artists MTAA, schematically illustrates this vision: art "happens" in a space, not necessarily physical, which is that of connections.
