Projects initiated by invited artists, guests and the staff of Work.Master. Often, they are developed in the context of Lab.Zones.



Wie zu Hause, Wo ich nicht bin at the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève (Sept/Oct. 2020) is the follow-up to the exhibition Fridges Are not Frigid held in September 2019 at the Archivio Conz Berlin. On that occasion, a group of eight students conceived an exhibition as a dialogue between their works and those of Francesco Conz’ Fluxus archive. Wie zu Hause, Wo ich nicht bin is an expanded iteration of that event curated by Niels Trannois.
