basis e.V. presents the exhibition "Structural Stowaway", featuring artistic positions that, using China as a point of departure, address the impact of global interconnections and geopolitical ambitions from historical and contemporary perspectives. The artists Musquiqui Chihying, Elom 20ce with Gregor Kasper, Peng Ke, Xiaoshi Qin, Hu Wei, and the collective Geocinema (Asia Bazdyrieva, Solveig Qu Suess) employ the power of artistic expression to visually represent this web of planetary networks and their stowaways.

"Structural Stowaway" gives us an insight into the complexity and contradictions of our globalised world. In addition, various works in the exhibition illustrate how complex the global networks between Asia and the rest of the world have now become, and how landscapes are permeated by a multitude of interests from different nations. At a time of natural disasters, war and the recent pandemic, the exhibition invites us to reflect on the complexity of our world. It highlights how history, legends, and myths permeate our present. At the same time, it shows how information networks and global structures shape our world.

Curated by Antonie Angerer and Anna-Viktoria Eschbach.
