Artists' initiatives from around the world testing new exhibition and mediation formats have been invited to the subvision festival from 08/26 to 09/06/2009 to present their artistic work as well as their very own strategies of presenting and mediating art. 31 artists' groups, independent project spaces, artists' archives, and research projects from 19 countries that are developing outside established institutions and disregarding commercial viability will create an exciting and variegated presentation forum with exhibitions, artists' talks, performances, concerts, readings, and video screenings. A temporary exhibition architecture consisting of shipping containers and scaffolding form an extraordinary frame for an unconventional endeavour. The design of the yet undeveloped "prime cut" of the HafenCity is oriented towards urban planning models, citing them not without irony.
