“Artistic success depends on a healthy network. But what does this network look like in a society that puts competition over solidarity? What does artistic success require? What does a healthy artistic ecosystem need? The exhibition Mycelia is a joint reflection on success, ecosystem, networking and detoxification.
Based on thoughts about biological ecosystems, artists from Munich and Riga explore them in micro-cooperations. The fungus mycelium serves as a model for thought and describes thread-like cells of a fungus. They grow invisibly in the culture medium and combine underground over square kilometres to form a huge biological mass. In this network, mycelia also provide a healthy ecosystem for outside organisms.“
Due to Covid19 Mycelia is also an extensive permanent online exhibition with artist talks and discussions always available for viewing.
