Depot Basel

Wir sind keine Messe. Wir sind kein Festival,
kein Museum, kein Showroom, keine Galerie.
Wir sind ein temporärer Ort für kontemporäre Gestaltung,
mit den besten Absichten.

Exhibition 33 (05.06.– 15.08.2015) –
THE COLLECTIVE INTENTION

“Taking our seat under the transparent crystal of the common good, through the action of some mysterious machinery, we would then collectively endowed with more acute vision and higher virtue. At least that was the idea, no matter of the machinery was the social contract or some other metamorphosis: The selfish narrow-minded worm will re-emerge as a brightly colored collective butterfly.”

Quoted from “From Realpolitik to Dingpolitik or How to Make Things Public” by Bruno Latour

Members of collectives do not consider themselves as competitors, they aspire to create a network. Do they share similarities? How do collectives originate? What creates a sense of togetherness? Depot Basel dedicates an exhibition to these recurring patterns and to collective intent.
