A “marchland” is a medieval term for a borderland beyond direct state control, governed by changing laws and rules. The exhibition “On the Far Side of the Marchlands” explores the potential of radically new topographies – border regions (marchlands) created by artists and composed of inextricably linked realms of experience, culture, and materiality.

The 3D Additivist Cookbook, conceived and edited by Morehshin Allahyari and Daniel Rourke, is the point of departure for the exhibition, bringing together radical projects by over one hundred artists, activists, and theorists.

The exhibition at the Schering Stiftung includes works by Morehshin Allahyari, Cathrine Disney, Keeley Haftner, Brittany Ransom, and Daniel Rourke who examine 3D printing for its revolutionary potential. Beyond the hype of DIY practices and maker culture, they aim at turning 3D printing into a tool for emancipation and activism. Moreover, it is to help develop speculative, provocative, and peculiar ideas combining art, technology, and science.

As part of ever elusive – thirty years of transmediale Daniel Rourke’s and Morehshin Allahyari’s work The 3D Additivist Cookbook will be part of the special exhibition alien matter (2 February – 5 March 2017), curated by Inke Arns, at Haus der Kulturen der Welt. Together with Dorothy Santos, Rasheedah Phillips and Luiza Prado & Pedro Oliveira (A Parede), the artists will also participate in the panel Singularities on 5 February 2017.

“On the Far Side of the Marchlands” is a partner exhibition to the special exhibition “alien matter,” co-financed by Berlin LOTTO Foundation within the scope of ever elusive – thirty years of transmediale.
