89plus

Hans Ulrich Obrist, Simon Castets / 2013

Since an introductory panel held in January 2013 at the DLD – Digital, Life, Design conference in Munich, 89plus has conducted research in Australia with Kaldor Public Art Projects, in Hong Kong with Art Basel’s Salon series, in New York as part of the MoMA PS1 Colony, and in Italy with the Innovation Festival, Bolzano-Bozen. Other events include the 89plus Conference, which took place in Venice on September 5 2013 at Palazzo Grassi, and the 89plus Marathon on October 18 and 19 2013 at London’s Serpentine Galleries, bringing emerging practitioners from all disciplines together with world renowned artists and thinkers. 89plus has developed a series of residencies with various partners internationally, including the Park Avenue Armory in New York and the Tara Oceans Polar Circle Expedition.
Marked by several paradigm-shifting events, the year 1989 saw the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the start of the post-Cold War period; the introduction of the World Wide Web and the beginning of the universal availability of the Internet, as well as the orbit of the first Global Positioning System satellite. Positing a relationship between these world-changing events and creative production at large, 89plus introduces the work of some of this generation’s most inspiring protagonists.
