Syncretic Sites deals with past, forgotten, repressed or future events and existences. Just like any other place, Shedhalle is inhabited by traces from other times and spaces.
Fleeting bodies, hunches and vague allusions take center stage. Ghosts, memories, visions, dreams, traumas and all that would remain unheard and unheard-of, if we did not decide to listen.

At this moment, we make time for “timing-out”. In the middle of our five year endeavor PROTOZONES 2020-2025 we take some time to reflect on our curatorial practice.

At this moment, we make time for “timing-out”. In the middle of our five year endeavor PROTOZONES 2020-2025 we take some time to gather and reflect on our curatorial practice. As part of this, we invite collaborators who are already in the process of preparing contributions for future Protozones. All together, we wish to create a common space of gathering, inviting you for workshops, games, screenings and food.
We are looking forward to spending this time together with you. Lucie Tuma, Michelangelo Miccolis, Phila Bergmann & Thea Reifler.

QUEER TRUST is an attitude that draws from and relies on the in-between. It has shaped the work at Shedhalle as a space for process-based art since 2020 and is also the basis of Protozone8. The exhibition shows artistic works and ways of working that trust in relationships and processes beyond fixed attributions. The participating artists share intimate, vulnerable, open, and courageous artwork. In doing so, they question (gender) identities as well as artistic, scientific, and social traditions and classifications.
open every Sat 14-20h & Sun 14-18h

The effects of climate change as well as of war are impacting not only the worldwide supply with fossil fuels but also very basic food supply, especially in the global south. Proto-Club3 responds to the current crisis by bringing together two artistic perspectives on the complex question of how to treat and preserve food as our basic resource of survival.
