Each project is the main focus of one or more contributors to the Rhyzom network, which connect their work to other participants and to their areas on enquiry and development.

Collection of Minds

COLLECTION OF MINDS is a fluid platform for collaborative activity in which people from a wide variety of disciplines are invited to contribute to projects that question the prevailing horizon of political, social and economic possibility, employing artistic modes of presentation and representation to present alternatives (real and/or imagined) into the public domain, employing alternative circuits of production and distribution and/or the institutional site of art as appropriate.

See the first zine, COMMON, by Fiona Woods here, and Public Common, a zine by ece sariyuz, commissioned  for collection of minds #1 here.

R-Urban - constructing new cultures of resilience

International Village Shop

A new model for interdisciplinary local cultural production and trans-local and online dissemination.

Cultural Agencies

"Cultural Agencies" is a project with a duration of two years that seeks to develop contemporary models of cultural collaborations and institutional practices.

The Translocal Condition


The Translocal Condition takes as its starting position an idea that the local is the exact point at which people can act in the interests of change. By connecting translocally, it becomes possible to build networks of change.

Each of the eight participating artists or artist collectives, drawn from around the world, shows a film work that engages with specific local conditions. By focusing on action and possibility, these works place the capacity and the responsibility for change in the hands of ordinary people, wherever they find themselves.
