Johanna Bruckner: Terra X
The exhibition »love and other rhythms« unfolds through a collective design and experience in shared time and space, suggesting the idea of community as a constantly transforming organism. With this in mind, individual contributions keep invigorating and changing the configuration of the exhibition.
With Terra X, Johanna Bruckner presents a performance that takes a critical look at »Holochain«, a crypto-currency that generates its added value from digital social interaction. Bruckner examines the currency as a
potential breeding ground, asking urgent questions on the increasing capitalization of relationality in the age of surveillance capitalism. With her so-called »Holochain Body Contract« Bruckner introduces care and crypto-solidarity as key factors for more democratic and decentralized forms of potential future communities and problematizes existing power dynamics in the digital world.

The exhibition »love and other rhythms« embodies a multi-relational, performative platform where artists and visitors alike are invited to reflect on the processes and conditions of togetherness. The selected contributions attend to various social constellations and thus offer a breeding ground for a speculative world-making.
