Our values

Our identity as an organization and our projects are shaped by nine values. They guide our continued formation, and hold us accountable to our history and our publics.

Our projects are responsive to social issues and concerns
Our projects enable and perform polycentric conversations
Our projects question power, ethics, and institutionality
Our projects build informal economies and collaborations
Our projects resist classification and make alternatives possible
Our projects rethink display to enable new forms of encounter
Our projects cultivate publics and new modes of engagement
Our projects negotiate local and global borders
Our projects are marked by change, exchange, and self-reflection
